Future proofing healthcare: What evidence tells us about creating sustainable healthcare systems

Join us for our upcoming research showcase:

Future proofing healthcare: What evidence tells us about creating sustainable healthcare systems

Macquarie University, 23 Wally’s Walk, Theatre 1, Macquarie Park NSW 2113 and online

16 June 2023, 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM

To register

The event celebrates the culmination of six years of research into improving the sustainability of healthcare systems by PCHSS investigators and our system partners. The day will be composed of two sessions.

The first session will showcase the outcomes and recommendations that arose from our research throughout the life of this grant. The second will be an interactive simulation of the healthcare system where we invite participants to think outside the box to explore solutions to ongoing challenges to the healthcare system.

The event will include health consumers, GPs, media, private health insurers, managers, researchers and policy makers.
