Treatment overload: Lifting the burden of too much healthcare

Wednesday, 13 November 2019
2:30 – 7 PM, including cocktail reception
Sydney Harbour Marriott
30 Pitt Street
Sydney, NSW

A simulation of the Australian health system

In a friendly inter-disciplinary setting, you will experience what it’s like tackling some of the wicked problems faced by our health system today.

The scenario:

  • Healthcare costs are rising, while healthcare budgets are shrinking.
  • 30% of treatment has little or no value to the patient and may be harmful.

The challenge:

  • Create a sustainable healthcare system under these conditions.

Join the NHMRC Partnership Centre for Health System Sustainability’s experts on health system sustainability and healthcare waste, policy makers, health professionals and health consumers as we map the way to a sustainable healthcare system for Australia.

Confirmed speakers include Professor Jeffrey Braithwaite (Chief Investigator, PCHSS), Ms Elizabeth Koff (Secretary, NSW Health), and Professor Paul Glasziou (Bond University).
