We invite you to attend the National Rural & Remote Telehealth Conference being held at the Empire Theatre on 16 and 17 October in Toowoomba, Queensland.
Through the Blueprint for Better Healthcare in Queensland (2013) the Queensland Government has committed to establishing the Rural Telehealth Service, providing unprecedented access to a new generation of safe and sustainable care for residents in small, rural or remote communities.
Telehealth using videoconferencing technology has been a developing service option for residents within rural and remote Australia for nearly 20 years. The introduction of a range of telehealth MBS items in 2011 and recent implementation of telehealth funding incentives to support adoption in the public sector represents a growing opportunity to fully realise the potential benefits of telehealth across the whole of the health sector in Queensland.
This conference has four main aims with a particular emphasis on sustainably embedding telehealth enabled service delivery models in rural and remote communities:
- Facilitate shared problem solving, learning and innovation
- Identify opportunities to enhance and integrate the telehealth capability of both the public and private health systems
- Develop strategies to involve patients, carers, clinicians and policy makers to increase and sustain momentum for improved telehealth services
- Improve and embed telehealth enabling business processes and systems with a focus on service sustainability across the health sector
Full attendance at this conference attracts 9 ACRRM Continuing Professional Development Points (CPD)
