National Primary Health Care Conference 8-10 November-call for Extracts

A call for Abstracts is now open for the National Primary Health Care Conference, in Adelaide, 8-10 November 2012. Closing date for Abstracts is midnight, Sunday 1 July 2012.

 The National Primary Health Care Conference replaces the annual AGPN National Forum, recognising the broader primary health care role that is now the domain of Medicare Locals.  The broadened scope both for Medicare Locals and this Conference seeks to recognise the need to achieve a holistic and integrated approach to primary healthcare across local communities.

The theme for this year’s conference is: HEALTHY COMMUNITIES, HEALTHY NATION, “From Transition to Action: Integrating Primary Health and Social Care”

The Conference presents an opportunity for consumer organisations to showcase leading edge and innovative work that they have been involved in that is driving better health outcomes for consumers. 

 Abstracts are being call for both presentation slots and table-top presentations. 

 Full details are available at:

Please note that Abstracts must be submitted using the Conference template and following the instructions provided by AGPN.

Successful submissions are eligible for the early-bird registration rate. (All costs to be met by presenters).

CHF is represented on the conference advisory committee and is very keen to ensure consumer priorities, consumer views and consumer-led innovation features in the program.  We are also hopeful of securing some support for consumer participation through a separate avenue.  Members will be kept informed of any opportunities that may become available.
