Description

Influencing Interprofessional Communication and Practice: Today’s Realities

Following popular demand the Emeritus Professor Lloyd Sansom AO Distinguished Lecture Series is returning to Canberra, Tuesday 27 November 2018.

Professor Debra Rowett PSM, will leave you inspired with her thought provoking talk on 'Influencing Interprofessional Communication and Practice: Today’s Realities'.

Health care in Australia is changing to address the challenges in providing effective, timely, value-based care. The success of healthcare teams relies on effective interprofessional communication.

Current models are often provider-centric involving a variety of health care providers to meet the varied health care needs of a population. The increasing array of diagnostic tests, complexity of illnesses, multimorbidity, interventions and care options combined with the number of health carers and organisations involved can make it difficult for the recipients and providers of care to negotiate the health care system.

This complexity, a lack of integrated information systems and the increasing longitudinal care required for an ageing population and those living with chronic disease can impact effective communication between health care team members, their patients and their carers and families.The reality of today requires effective interprofessional communication that reflects the patient’s journey – increasingly it will be via electronic and digital platforms.

This lecture will focus on implementing successful interprofessional communication opportunities in practice, policy and education.

Join us at the Majura Park Conference Centre, Canberra, for a stimulating lecture and adjourn for light refreshments at 5pm.
