Esme & Elisha are your tutors for our Women’s Health 101 6 month course💗🧠👩‍💻👩‍🏫

These gals have a pretty impressive track record, with 15 years between them of working in Women’s Health, as well as tutoring with ACU, QUT, UQ and Sports Med Australia.
We asked our tutors why they do what they do with The WHC!
Esme: As a new graduate I found it difficult to find professional development in women’s health that I could attend as an EP, or that took a multi-disciplinary approach. So, being a lonely solo practitioner, I met up with some other allied health professionals (osteos, physios, podiatrists, nutritionists, midwives and GP’s) in my local area who shared my love for learning, and we began to teach each other! After seeing what a fantastic response we had from networking with others - the learning and improved patient outcomes - I took the WHC online to expand our collective & help educate other passionate practitioners!

Elisha: My first role as an AEP was in a musculoskeletal clinic where the majority of my clientele were female. I found some of my long term clients disclosing symptoms that I hadn’t learnt how to manage before. Worse, some of these symptoms I had never even heard of before! Fast forward to taking a course on SUI, I discovered my passion in advocating for the health of all women and people assumed female at birth. Being a young, inexperienced practitioner, I decided to reach out to Esme to see what she was doing at her clinic. She introduced me to the Women’s Health Collective where I have found a new passion facilitating education to other practitioners so that they don’t feel as lost as I ever did.

Our Semester 1 2024 enrolment is open now, starting APRIL 5th (So sooooon!) We have only a few places left in class - wanna learn more? Enrol online at the link in our bio

March 8th was International Women’s Day, and you better believe EVERYDAY is IWD here at WHC.

This year’s International Women’s Day theme of “Inspiring Inclusion” resonates deeply with me - especially with the ethos and values we hold at WHC - we are not just about providing exceptional women’s health care -

💓 Creating a community of support and empowerment in women’s health
💓 Celebrating women’s achievement in research, health, advocacy, sporting and performance
💓Raising awareness about discrimination, and identifying ways to change the narrative and amplify voices of those marginalised and minority groups
💓 Take action to drive gender equality in healthcare
IWD belongs to everyone, everywhere. Let’s gooooo!

MELBOURNE! Hosted by our friends - Join us in hearing from our guest speaker, Rora, who identifies as a transgender female. When Rora first asked an EP to be a part of her care team as she prepared to transition, the EP had limited knowledge or experience in this patient journey. There was no lived experience, nor had they worked with anyone Trans before, but they was very keen to learn and support Rora in any way they could.

Most allied health practitioners report the same lack of knowledge, so let's change that. Rora is excited to come along to our next Women's Health Collective meetup and share her story with us. Enlightening us all with ways we as allied health can be allies and support Trans people.
