Dr Jeff McMullen, Journalist, Author and Film-maker, well known for his work on Four Corners and Sixty Minutes will deliver the GP13 opening plenary Health is a state of mind. The plenary will highlight that in order to improve the health of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people Australia must move from the sickness industry to a communal view of wellbeing.
With the 2011–13 RACGP QI&CPD triennium ending soon after the conference, GP13 will have an increased emphasis on clinical skills, offering both Category 1 and Category 2 points through a series of workshops, sessions, short papers and active learning modules. Delegates will also have ample opportunities to network with colleagues and peers from both Australia and overseas through the exciting social program.
