myPHN Conference 2018: Connecting our health care together

NQPHN is proud to have the third myPHN Conference in Mackay this year, and would like you to join us for this prestigious event.

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 impacting the health outcomes of communities.

Conference streams
• Working together to establish a shared vision for community need

• Working together to improve health systems and technology

• Working together to build workforce capacity and future capability

• Working together to 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, Hon Julia Gillard AC, and Hon Ken Wyatt AM MP, Minister for Aged Care and Minister for Indigenous Health, as well as attending the prestigious third annual NQPHN Health Professional Awards Evening.

After sell-out events in 2016 and 2017, this year’s myPHN Conference 2018 is not to be missed, and will deliver a program to prepare us for the future state of health care design, development, and provision.
