Jackie’s work on the Allied Health Professions Australia (AHPA) inter-professional network was crucial in bringing together a broad range of health professionals, academics and NGO staff to learn more about topics such as patient-centred care, professional development and the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS). Jackie’s skill and health experience as well as her professionalism and commitment to the project were invaluable in helping us achieve our project goals.”
