myPHN Conference 2018: Connecting our health care together
Health no longer sits only within the domain of the health sector—health now crosses industries, professions, systems, and technologies to be everyone’s business. myPHN Conference 2018 is focused on connecting healthcare providers, people, sectors, technology, and innovation to all work together in positively impact on the wellbeing of our communities.
Working together to:
• establish a shared vision for community need
• improve health systems and technology
• build workforce capacity and future capability
• deliver innovation, research, and reform.
The philosophy and practice of primary health care emphasises a comprehensive service approach which includes curative services, prevention of disease, and promotion of health, community participation, and inter-sectoral collaboration. In contemporary Australia, the scope and determinants of good or poor health outcomes cannot be addressed by the health sector alone. The complexities of the issue are diverse and the solutions are only just beginning to emerge.
Health is affected by more than just the presence or absence of disease, illness, or injury. Health is complex and many of its core attributes are anchored in the social context. myPHN Conference 2018 embraces this diversity and invites a cross-section of service planners and providers to participate in the exploration of connecting health.
Across the weekend of 1–2 September 2018, delegates and exhibitors will have access and opportunities to engage with over 40 world-class speakers and industry professionals spanning multiple professions and services.
Delegates will also enjoy keynote addresses by esteemed speakers such as former Australian Prime Minister and beyondblue Chair, the Hon Julia Gillard AC, and Senator the Hon Bridget McKenzie, Minister for Rural Health, Minister for Sport and Minister for Regional Communications, as well as attending the prestigious third annual NQPHN Health Professional Awards.
This year’s myPHN Conference 2018 is not to be missed, and will deliver a program to prepare you for the future state of health care design, development, and provision.
