GMC membership provides connection, knowledge sharing among peers, tailored training and advocacy.

As part of this mission, members can participate in specialised networks – or knowledge clusters.  These offer communities of practice and allow more targeted discussions for your team members.  The knowledge clusters aim to:

  1. Share knowledge among a trusted group of peers.
  2. Discuss and help solve common challenges. 
  3. Build collaborative opportunities for developing best practice in the region.
