Event description
Join us in Alice Springs for a special conversation about remote dialysis, community-led healthcare and keeping culture strong.

About this Event

Renal dialysis treatments in very remote areas are now funded through a new Medicare Benefits Schedule item number. As Australia’s main provider of very remote dialysis, we are proud of how we care for our patients in remote communities and excited about what this means for getting more people home to country. Join us in Alice Springs this April, for a special conversation about remote dialysis, community-led healthcare and keeping culture strong.

When:

The conference runs over two days from Tuesday 9 April to Wednesday 10 April 2019.

You can also join us on Thursday 11 April 2019 for an optional field trip to a remote community to see dialysis in action.

The registration fees cover morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea on both days, and a welcome function on Tuesday 9 April. And of course you'll get the chance to share a kangaroo tail and some damper with us.

Program highlights:

  • The Purple House Story - hear how the sale of some spectacular paintings led to one of Australia's most innovative and culturally vibrant health services.
  • How the new Medicare Benefit Schedule Item number for remote dialysis can work for your organisation.
  • Getting back to country - how to get people home safely.
  • When your patients are your bosses - the true meaning of patient-centred care.
  • Wellbeing services - how to grow holistic, patient-focused outcomes.
  • Dialysis speed-dating - the nuts and bolts of delivering remote dialysis services. There are no dumb questions!
  • Get your selfie with the Purple Truck (and take a tour!).
  • Learn to make bush medicine products and take some home with you!
  • Go bush - take a day trip to a remote clinic to see remote dialysis in action.
  • Visit Parrtjima: A free festival in light.
