Capability and competency framework

A new Capability and Competency Framework has been designed by the Brisbane South PHN Leadership Team to examine key aspects of the organisation’s vision, values, purpose and goals to clearly identify the relevant success behaviours to ensure that Brisbane South PHN is a high-performing organisation, achieving improvements in health care for our communities.

Position descriptions were also updated using the framework along with a new, simplified position template, designed to remove repetition and provide greater clarity about the organisation, key responsibilities and the skills, experience and qualifications required for each role.
