Choosing Wisely Australia National Meeting: Empowering consumers to choose wisely
This year’s National Meeting offers a platform for Choosing Wisely members and supporters, policy makers, consumer advocates, health services and other healthcare influencers to engage in discussions, presentations and workshops.
The focus will be on empowering consumers and supporting health professionals to be champions for changing the conversations in our health system so that people only receive care that is evidence-based and truly necessary.
NMS 2020: Rising to the medication safety challenge
A unique cross-disciplinary event, NMS 2020 will bring together influential organisations, individuals and decision makers in the health sector to discuss and debate key issues around quality use of medicines and health technologies. The program will encourage a collaborative approach with a focus on the needs of the consumer.
Medicine safety has been named a National Health Priority Area and the 3rd WHO Global Patient Safety Challenge: Medication Without Harm. Attendees at NMS 2020 will hear from experts who can provide the latest on the medicines and health environment in this context.
Attracting people from all sectors of the health industry, this event is a rare opportunity to network, share expertise, ideas and innovations.
