Policy lessons for generating action on the social determinants of health equity.                    29 November Canberra

It’s been 10 years since the WHO Commission on the Social Determinants of Health reported on how to reduce inequities in power, money and resources and people’s daily living conditions in order to improve health equity.

SEE WHO WEBSITE

The progress has been patchy reflecting the many political and policy challenges which occur throughout the policy process – how issues get onto the agenda, policy formulation, implementation and assessment.

Understanding and acting on these challenges will be a key step forward to acheiving more equitable health outcomes for all Australians.

The National Policy Symposium is an opportunity for politicians, government officials, non-government organisations, media, researchers and the general public to engage on these topics, which are addressed in the CRE-SDHE.

The Symposium will focus on what works and why in the commercial determinants of health, trade and investment, Indigenous affairs, urban environments, social protection/paid parental leave and health systems, offering a range of national and international speakers.

The Symposium will conclude with a panel discussion entitled “The 10-year Rollercoaster of Global Health Equity: Power, Progress and Pitfalls” hosted by Paul Barclay, Big Ideas, ABC Radio National. This discussion will be broadcast on the Big Ideas radio program.

Speakers include:

Professor Jeff Collin, University of Edinburgh

Professor Louise Signal, University of Otago

Professor Sharon Friel, Australian National University

Professor Fran Baum AO, Flinders University

This symposium is presented by the NHMRC Centre of Research Excellence in the Social Determinants of Health Equity (CRE-SDHE) in the School of Regulation and Global Governance (RegNet) at The Australian National University.

The organisers would like to acknowledge the support from The Australian National University, Flinders University, The University of Sydney, the University of Ottawa and the Lowitja Institute.

Influencing Interprofessional Communication and Practice: Today’s Realities 27 November 

Following popular demand the Emeritus Professor Lloyd Sansom AO Distinguished Lecture Series is returning to Canberra, Tuesday 27 November 2018.

Professor Debra Rowett PSM, will leave you inspired with her thought provoking talk on ‘Influencing Interprofessional Communication and Practice: Today’s Realities’.

Health care in Australia is changing to address the challenges in providing effective, timely, value-based care. The success of healthcare teams relies on effective interprofessional communication.

Current models are often provider-centric involving a variety of health care providers to meet the varied health care needs of a population. The increasing array of diagnostic tests, complexity of illnesses, multimorbidity, interventions and care options combined with the number of health carers and organisations involved can make it difficult for the recipients and providers of care to negotiate the health care system.

This complexity, a lack of integrated information systems and the increasing longitudinal care required for an ageing population and those living with chronic disease can impact effective communication between health care team members, their patients and their carers and families.The reality of today requires effective interprofessional communication that reflects the patient’s journey – increasingly it will be via electronic and digital platforms.

This lecture will focus on implementing successful interprofessional communication opportunities in practice, policy and education.

Join us at the Majura Park Conference Centre, Canberra, for a stimulating lecture and adjourn for light refreshments at 5pm.

Debra Rowett, PSM

2nd National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Suicide Prevention Conference 20-23 November Perth

” The National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Suicide Prevention and World Indigenous Suicide Prevention Conference Committee invite and welcome you to Perth for the second National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Suicide Prevention Conference, and the second World Indigenous Suicide Prevention Conference.

Our Indigenous communities, both nationally and internationally, share common histories and are confronted with similar issues stemming from colonisation. Strengthening our communities so that we can address high rates of suicide is one of these shared issues. The Conferences will provide more opportunities to network and collaborate between Indigenous people and communities, policy makers, and researchers. The Conferences are unique opportunities to share what we have learned and to collaborate on solutions that work in suicide prevention.

This also enables us to highlight our shared priorities with political leaders in our respective countries and communities.
