Event description

Description

The National Genomics Policy Framework Project Reference Group invites you to participate in a national stakeholder consultation process that will inform the development of the Implementation Plan for the National Health Genomics Policy Framework.

Background

In November 2017 the National Health Genomics Policy Framework 2018–2021 was agreed by Health Ministers through the COAG Health Council. The Framework is available at:

https://www.coaghealthcouncil.gov.au/Publications/Reports

Implementation Planning

The development of an Implementation Plan for the National Health Genomics Policy Framework is an important initial step to integrating genomics into the Australian health system.

Consultation forums in Sydney and Melbourne will be held in December 2017. The consultation forums will focus on workshopping the priority actions for the Commonwealth and states and territories for the next three years.

Who can attend?

Anyone with an interest or involvement in shaping decision making at a national and jurisdictional level on genomics policy, strategies, actions and services is invited to attend a forum.

Registrations

Registrations are essential to attend the consultation forums. To register, click on the green 'Register' button, and follow the prompts.

Registrations for this forum close on 7 December 2017 to ensure venue planning can be finalised. You will be emailed a forum information pack, including venue details, a few days before the forum date.

Please note that once capacity is reached, registration will close. To ensure that a range of stakeholders have an opportunity to participate there is a limit of 2 registrations per organisation.

If you register but later find that you cannot attend, please cancel your ticket on Event Brite or inform us via email at genomics@health.gov.au

Other ways to participate

The forum is just one part of the consultation process. If you are unable to attend or would prefer to provide feedback online, an online submission process will also be run to complement the consultation forums. This is expected to go live in late November 2017 and will include a consultation draft of the Implementation Plan. To confirm if you would like to receive this link, please email genomics@health.gov.au
