$100,000 in Awards Offered

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.


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. 
We will also have futurist Tim Longhurst speaking about the future of health care delivery in the opening plenary session on Thursday morning. Tim is an outstanding speaker who has consulted with many multi-national organisations around the globe. In addition, Dr Nigel Lyons, the Chief Executive of the NSW Agency for Clinical Innovation, will speak at the closing plenary session and make awards to the winning innovations in each of the Innovation Streams.

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. 


The meeting announcement and agenda can be downloaded here.

We encourage all participants to submit a poster to share your learnings and issues with your colleagues.  Please click here for the Call for Posters.

Hurry!  Space is limited to 50 people in each concurrent session.  Please register on our website from 17 August.
