Welcome to the SA / NT Branch section of the AAPM website.

View Committee Members

The SA/NT State Committee has a strong commitment to education and support for our members.  We have a team of very approachable volunteers on the committee, so please do not hesitate to contact any one of us if you have an opinion to share, a comment or idea for an educational topic.  It is exciting to see the SA/NT committee has representatives from all areas of healthcare -   GP, Specialist, Allied Health and Dental – which should enable us to answer queries from the varying range of practices across our state/territory.  

The committee is working strongly with Head Office and the National Board in the development of a National Education Strategy. We hope this will provide some innovative Team Educational Days as well as some advanced topics for the Practice Manager who is looking to push their practice that little bit further.   If you have not already made yourself familiar with the AAPM website, now that you are here, take the time to look a little deeper!   For example, check out the AAPM Forum where you can ask questions, or follow existing threads, that are posted so responses can come from any Practice Managers around Australia. 

I look forward to meeting you at an educational day soon and please make sure if I have not met you that you make yourself known to me. You can also get in touch with me via email.  I like to catch up with you, our members, to make sure you are getting the very best out of the Association and your AAPM membership.

Tasmania Branch

Welcome to the Tasmanian Branch section of the AAPM website

Thank you for stopping by the Tasmanian Branch of AAPM. I am the newly election State President and, along with the committee, am here to support you in your role of Practice Manager. Although Tassie is a small state in relation to overall membership, our goal during the next 12 months is to reach out to Practice Managers across all areas of healthcare. Specialist, Allied Health and Dental Practice Managers are all welcome to join AAPM and we look to provide training sessions that cater for every health discipline. My goal as President is to represent you and to support you in your role. 

I believe that Practice Managers need to “have a seat at the table” as the healthcare system continues to change. Over the last few years of continually developing my skill base, I have found that networking has been a highly valuable resource. Therefore, as a committee we will endeavor to provide as many networking opportunities as possible. Keep an eye out for dates of our planned events and I look forward to catching up with you there.

Western Australia Branch

Welcome to the WA Branch section of the AAPM website.

View Committee Members

Our WA committee now has a full complement of members, with a good mixture of long term and new members, from General Practice and Specialist practices. The Committee comprises of Simone Dorevitch (State President), Fiona Wong (Board Representative), Narelle Supanz (Treasurer), and members Karin Tatnell, Dani Landau, Richard Sykes, Claire Stocks, Sue Stark and Louise Turner.

With the additional ‘woman/man’ power we will have extra expertise, energy and creativity and will be looking to:

  • Continue to grow the WA AAPM member base
  • Provide quality educational programs
  • Provide networking events
  • Review the feedback we receive from events and, where possible, integrate it into future events
  • Continue to personally welcome new members 
  • Increase our relationships with other relevant organisations

In 2017 the National Conference will be held in Perth. This will provide WA Practice Managers an exciting opportunity to enjoy the full conference or attend on a day-by day basis. 

We continue to try to schedule events covering topics that are relevant and meet your needs as members, so please don’t hesitate to email or call us if you have ideas for seminar topics.\

We look forward to catching up with you at an event.
