Utilising the broad-reaching concepts of integration, innovation and collaboration as streams, the SA Primary Health Care Conference program encourages everyone to consider how these concepts can be included in their work. Participants will interact in workshops and hear from - and engage with - a range of experts through keynote presentations, TED-style talks and panel discussions hosted by Mark Aiston.
This stream will explore a variety of methods and models which aim to connect and align health care professionals and providers. Participants will have the opportunity to hear from and engage with a range of speakers who are actively working to provide integrated health care, and they will leave with a greater understanding of how to undertake integration activities in their own day-to-day practice.
Designing and delivering new solutions for old problems is the key to many innovative activities. Participants in this stream will discover a range of interesting and innovative activities in primary care, learning about practical, real-life ways that innovation has improved health outcomes for South Australians.
Showcasing a selection of programs and activities from around South Australia, this stream will introduce participants to varying approaches used when collaborating to improve health outcomes. Participants will get to know about the barriers and facilitators of collaboration, as well as learning tips and tricks to improve or start their own collaboration activities.
There are two mental health workshops offered on the Friday. The GP only mental health workshop will be offered as a CPD activity, upskilling participants in low intensity, moderate and severe primary mental health treatments (40 Category 1 points with RACGP and ACRRM - pending).
