About this Event

SOLD OUT

What does an effective medical precinct look like? What does it do? How can a precinct engage service users and the community more broadly and impact on health and wellbeing?

Join us in the morning and find out about how successful partnerships and precincts operate.

Be part of the discussion with community, clinical, academic and industry leaders and have your say.

In the afternoon, focus switches to specific areas of partnership – Neuroscience, Value-based health care, Musculoskeletal Health and Mental Health.

Group 1: Neuroscience Forum Facilitator: Peter Keller

A symposium with leading researchers in the health and wellbeing space, including neuroscientist Professor Jürgen Götz Foundation Chair of Dementia Research Director, and Clem Jones Centre for Ageing Dementia Research (CJCADR), Queensland Brain Institute. Given the importance of collaboration and research impact and translation, this forum will include opportunities for exploring areas of mutual interest with a view to forming new collaborations, and is ideal for Westmead Hospital and Western Sydney University staff and student researchers.

Group 2: Value-based health Care: What is it and how we capture service user’ experiences. Facilitator: Virginia Schmied & Ann Dadich

Value-based healthcare is emerging as a new model to organise healthcare performance. According to NSW Health, it ‘means delivering services that improve… health outcomes that matter to patients; the experience of receiving care; the experience of providing care; [and] the effectiveness and efficiency of care’. Given local and international interest in this model, this workshop considers what it is and how the experience of receiving and giving care. Is best captured and used to inform service delivery, including the value of arts-based approaches to capture experience. And most importantly, how are service users engaged in determining the implementation and effectiveness fo this model?

Group 3: Musculoskeletal Health Facilitator: David Mahnns and Paul Marshall

Group 4: Transformative Care for People Living with Depression.

Facilitator: Tanya Meade
