Conference gives delegates, participants opportunity to network, share insights and unwind Welcome Reception

The 34th APHA National Congress, held at The Pullman and Mercure Melbourne Albert Park from 22-24 March, brought together stalwarts of the private health sector, healthcare experts, academics, trade exhibitors and others for the year’s premier networking opportunity. The Congress delivered a thought-provoking and informative look into the issues impacting private hospitals in 2015. One of the highlights of the event was a talk by Department of Health Secretary Martin Bowles, who shared his vision of an integrated health system with well-defined roles for both public and private hospitals and the Commonwealth as a steward of the industry.

This year, the program focused on international experiences in healthcare, how to break down generational barriers in the workplace, consumer issues, workforce mental health, e-health innovations and much more. In addition to insightful presentations by keynote and plenary speakers, the Congress facilitated debate and discussion through a program of formal and informal networking opportunities and showcased industry innovation in the Trade Exhibition. An entertaining Gala Dinner against the backdrop of a magic show by mentalist Cath Jamison and soulful singing by Lisa Hunt and her troupe allowed delegates a chance to unwind after daylong presentations and debates.
