We regularly run one day forums around a central topic. Our forums are affordable and inspiring!
Why attend our forums?
Our forums are an opportunity for consumers, quality managers, community participation coordinators and medical and allied health staff to:
- Hear from local, regional and interstate speakers; our speakers are a mix of consumers and health care staff who are experts in their fields
- Share ideas; forums are structured to encourage peer to peer exchange of experiences and practices
- Network; establish connections with others working in this important area
- Keep informed on topics of interest and relevance; exploring best practice in consumer engagement.
Recent forums have addressed topics such as:
- Listening to the Consumer Voice: What does healthy dialogue look like in 2015
- Standard 2 – Beyond Accreditation
- Patient Experience
If you would like to speak at a future forum or have suggestions for topics, please contact us.
