HSRAANZ Webinar Series – Developing and applying measures of low-value care in New South Wales public hospitals

March 5, 2019 @ 11:30 am

Low-value care is use of a test or treatment when the expected benefit to the patient does not outweigh the potential harms.

HSRAANZ Webinar Series – The long road to pharmacy reform in Australia – 2 July 2019

July 2, 2019 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

The 2017 Review of Pharmacy Remuneration and Regulation provided a comprehensive roadmap for reform in the supply of medicines to Australian consumers. The Report took almost two years to complete and presented over 40 recommendations to government. Most recommendations were agreed unanimously by a panel that included a consumer representative and a Pharmacy Guild member. They offer benefits to consumers and value-for-money for taxpayers. In this webinar, the Chair of the Review will discuss the need for reform and the options presented by the Review. As the Commonwealth Government and the Pharmacy Guild commence negotiations on the Seventh Community Pharmacy Agreement, it is important that these recommendations form the foundations of that Agreement.

HSRAANZ – The Crisis in Health and Medical Statistics

August 1, 2019 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

In our latest webinar Professor Adrain Barnett will discuss the crisis in health and medical statistics. Health and medical research is vital for improving the lives of Australians. At its best it involves skilled researchers testing relevant questions using rigorous methods that translate into practice. Unfortunately, much research that uses statistics fails to improve health because of long-standing issues such as inadequate training, poor regulation and perverse incentives that reward quantity over quality. Recent attempts to reproduce peer reviewed papers in health and medicine had failure rates between 75% and 90%, and an estimated 85% of research is currently lost due to poor research practices.

Although the current situation is grim there is enormous potential to increase the value of health and medical research by promoting better statistical practice.
