Special Interest Groups

Submit a SIG Application

The Sydney Health Policy Network would like to hear from members who are interested in establishing a Special Interest Group (SIG) in health policy advocacy, research or education.

The purpose of SIGs is to promote/enhance focused discussion within particular fields of health policy advocacy, research and education. These groups are initiated and run by members of the SHPN. Membership of the group may be extended to non-SHPN members. The inclusion of local decision and policy makers is strongly encouraged.

Some central coordination for the groups will be provided by the Network, and information about group activities or new groups will be published on the SHPN website and emailed to members.

Proposals for SIGs are encouraged to be imaginative and cross-disciplinary in nature and should be emailed to the Sydney Health Policy Network office: . The proposal will then be forwarded to the SHPN Steering Committee for consideration.

Please note that If you have an idea for a SIG and would like some assistance in putting together a short proposal, please contact the Sydney Health Policy Network office: .

A copy of the SHPN SIG Guidelines is available in the Feature Pane at the right of this page.

A list of SIGs and contacts will be available as they are approved.
