Please share your innovative practices with your colleagues across
Australia and New Zealand!

The Health Care system has never been under such intense pressure. New technologies, an ageing population, and workforce shortages are combining with the global financial crisis to create a “perfect storm” for health system leaders. Major improvements in care delivery are urgently needed.

The Health Roundtable has been working with its member organisations throughout Australia and New Zealand since 1995 to identify practical innovations that can be implemented to reduce the pressures you’re facing across all aspects of patient care. By sharing issues and innovations with over 80 health services, you will be able to reduce the pain you’re experiencing, and work with your colleagues to improve the care of patients everywhere.

We are hosting a special Innovation Workshops and Awards meeting in Sydney on 11-12 October to share innovative practices in rapid-fire sessions across four concurrent streams on:

  • · Improving the Urgent Patient Journey
  • · Improving the Chronic Patient Journey
  • · Improving the Surgical Patient Journey
  • · Improving the Quality of Patient Care

The workshop sessions are designed to provide time to share your issues and innovations using a simple template in PowerPoint Poster format. You will receive one FREE REGISTRATION for each poster submitted, and the first four posters accepted in each session will be eligible for a $500 cash honorarium to help offset your travel expenses.

Please review the following information and pick one innovative practice from your health service to share with your colleagues. All that is required is a simple PowerPoint-style presentation outlining the issue you faced and the solution you implemented to address it.

Participants in each workshop session will choose one “best”poster and award the author’s organisation with a $1,000 credit on Health Roundtable activities. And, the overall winning poster in each of the four major themes will earn a $5,000 credit for the author’s organisation.

Please follow the attached guidelines and submit your poster as soon as possible to be eligible for the cash honorarium. If you have any questions regarding this important event please contact Kate Tynan 0417 481 661 [email protected]
