PAH Health Symposium 2018

PAH Health Symposium 2018 speakers announced

The Princess Alexandra Hospital (PAH) Health Symposium will return to Brisbane from Tuesday 31 July to Friday 3 August 2018.

The theme for the 58th PAH Health Symposium is ‘Humanity, technology and the evolution of healthcare’.

Technological advancements and associated research breakthroughs are revolutionising the way healthcare is delivered. From the adoption of electronic medical records and telehealth services, to advances in genomics, bio-medical engineering, 3D printing and other technology, modern healthcare is rapidly evolving.

But what impact will these changes have on the patient experience and how do healthcare professionals manage patient relationships in the face of a healthcare system which is becoming increasingly technically driven?

And how will healthcare systems and professionals manage the expectations of a consumer base who are becoming increasingly more engaged with their own healthcare delivery through consumer-operated healthcare applications and technology?

Learn, network and engage with global experts, colleagues, staff and industry representatives at the 58th PAH Health Symposium.
