The 60th Princess Alexandra Hospital (PAH) Health Symposium was held in Brisbane from Tuesday 24–Friday 27 August 2021. This year's theme was Embracing diversity in healthcare.
For the first time in its 60-year history, the 2021 four-day program was hosted entirely online, in light of the latest COVID-19 lockdowns and government enforced border closures throughout the country.
More than 70 speakers presented in 19 sessions over the course of the event via Zoom which saw attendees dial in from their home or office throughout various parts of the country.
The Organising Committee was confident in delivering an engaging and memorable virtual symposium for all. This was the safest approach for the well-being of the attendees, speakers and sponsors.
Attendees were able to participate in interactive and engaging experiences via a Zoom webinar virtual platform. A virtual trade exhibition for our sponsors was also featured, while all attendees connected from the comfort and safety of their home or office.
The symposium featured an outstanding range of sessions that allowed presenters to show their work virtually (whether as an oral or poster presenter), as well as opportunities for networking with colleagues via the attendee app.
Presentation recordings will be available via QHEPS shortly (subject to speaker consent).
^Attendees are encouraged to consider the symposium program and how it can be used for their CPD. Certificates of attendance will be provided on request.
