Leaders in Allied Health: Meeting Hui-Yu

Last week I had the wonderful experience of meeting an amazing social worker who put her vision into place at a rehabilitation centre in Northern Tasmania. Hui-Yu is more than a social worker, she is also a mother, and a campaigner for the greater good in healthcare. Yet, she is humble in the process. Part of the quiet revolution in healthcare. We need people like Hui-Yu who are happy to forge ahead with creative problem solving to craft their vision. If you are ever thinking of applying for a grant for your vision, keep reading!

Preparing for Easter

With Easter not far away hopefully you have started to think about what you need to do at your practice when there is a holiday period. Easter eggs have been out in force this year in the shops – for a while too – each time I grocery shop I panic about when Easter is and if I am organised. Seems to always sneak up on me, even though the signs of Easter are in the shops for months!! The Easter period means different things to each of us, but the common thread if you are running a private practice is that you may have a closure period coming up. Here are 5 things to consider this Easter in your practice.

Sometimes when we are caught up in the day to day running of our practice, we can forget to ensure we have followed the right legislative and ethical procedures – not for not wanting to, but just out of pure busy-ness. Don’t be one of those statistics – a practice owner too busy to get things in order. One of the essential things to get organised is how you go about privacy in your practice.

I believe one of the biggest factors that can really set apart a great entrepreneur in health care is the ability to be resilient. It is such an important concept, often overlooked.

The term entrepreneur is not greatly understood I believe. Sometimes it is associated with really out-there ideas, ground breaking wonderful “hang on to your hat” type ideas, and other times it is associated with the little people starting with little ideas. In healthcare it is rare to hear of an entrepreneur – and I often think that is because it has been associated so closely over the last 5 years with ‘business’ and ‘youth’ that people have started to feel it is not something that fits in our industry – I completely disagree! There are so many entrepreneurs in the health care industry.

One avenue that you can explore as an allied health business owner is looking to access grant funding to springboard your growth or transition. Before you launch into a grant application, let's look at some important considerations.
