Health Fusion

HealthFusion is an Australian program dedicated to encouraging greater collaboration between tomorrow’s health care professionals to ensure clients and end-users are provided with the best possible treatment and support.

HealthFusion was established in 2008 by a group of health educators and academics, then based at The University of Queensland. In 2009, the program expanded to incorporate the National HealthFusion Team Challenge (Oz HFTC), later the Trans-Tasman HFTC (TT HFTC, 2012), HFTCPro for health professionals (2013) and HFTC KickStart (2014). HealthFusion is committed to running its flagship program, the TT HFTC, as an annual national and international event.

The HealthFusion Project Team is currently situated at Queensland University of Technology (QUT) with team members based at several universities across Queensland. The HealthFusion Project Team is active in developing an evidence base for short, extra-curricula interprofessional education activities for students and professionals across the learning life-span.
