SFF training program
The objective of the SFF ‘Train the trainer’ program is to train health professionals in the methodology of the SFF Program. After completing the training, health professionals can return to their health service and deliver the program with some support from the National Centre for Farmer Health.
Trainers will develop a range of practical skills which will enhance and build on their existing skills and experience, including:
- Educational strategies – Adult learning theories and knowledge retention
- Partnership building – how to link in with and collaborate with industry partners
- recruitment methods
- Recruitment – key methods to maximise participation
Health services that have undertaken the training have found that it has become part of their strategic direction for farming families. The program addresses many of their organisation’s key primary health initiatives, for example:
- Ambulatory sensitive conditions
- Cardiovascular disease
- Men’s health and women’s health
- Physical activity.
