REGISTER NOW: Two weeks to go – VHA Annual Conference

Posted 01 August 2018

The 2018 VHA Annual Conference is set to bring together leaders of the public healthcare sector to explore working towards a stronger Victorian health system, in two weeks’ time on 16 and 17 August at the MCG.

‘We are facing significant challenges and opportunities in healthcare,’ Tom Symondson, Chief Executive Officer of the VHA said today. ‘The conference is a great opportunity for us as a sector to rethink and reset how we respond to these challenges and opportunities.’

Attendees will hear Minister for Health, the Hon. Jill Hennessy, Shadow Minister for Health, the Hon. Mary Wooldridge, the leader of The Greens, Nina Springle MP and the leader of the REASON Party, Fiona Patten MP, outline their health priorities and positions.

This year’s program has now been released and it encourages attendees to rethink ways to achieve effective health equity with insights from Professor Rob Moodie of the Melbourne School of Population and Global Health at The University of Melbourne, reset our approach to antimicrobial resistance with Professor Dame Sally Davies, Chief Medical Officer for England and Chief Medical Advisor to the UK government and reimagine how to gain the attention of government and its investment into capital projects with Professor Andrew Peele, Director of the Australian Synchrotron and ANSTO Victoria.

There will be a networking event on the first evening, a digital health breakfast at the start of the second day and a special briefing on Voluntary Assisted Dying and how it will be applied.

VHA voting members receive a complimentary conference ticket by using the code RETHINK18 at registration. They can also access a two for one offer for additional registrants when purchasing a ticket.
