The theme of the conference is: “Integrating Primary Care – creating a more connected health and care system”.
Integrated care is an evidence-based and people-centred approach to enhance the quality, value and experience of care, improve population health and wellbeing, and increase job satisfaction in the workforce. We are all interconnected and interdependent. Therefore, we must engage with relevant stakeholders, adhere to good quality clinical practice and work towards comprehensive and holistic care. With this in mind, we plan to focus on the following sub-themes during the conference:
- Population health and local context – disease surveillance, health promotion and preventative services
- Sharing patient care – team-based care
- Addressing multi-morbidity and long-term care
- Building professional capacity for integrated care
- Digital solutions
The conference will provide sessions on clinical topics, talks by invited speakers, presentations of original research, discussions on ethics and poster presentations.
