Central to delivering quality health care is delivering equitable health care to our diverse populations. Health Aotearoa 2020 provides an opportunity for us to genuinely progress and reflect the latest research and thinking on cultural safety and health equity. It is our hope that with a genuine commitment to best practice, the medical profession and associated health care organisations will embrace the concepts and knowledge from this hui, and put them into effective practice. Our patients and society expect nothing less.
The conference will showcase innovative approaches to health care, in particular multidisciplinary clinical integration, rural-focused care, patient-centred care, equity, e-health and mental health.
The health sector is continuously evolving, but the rate of change accelerated this year. The focus for this gathering will be to plan and prepare for the future of our sector.
We hope you can join us.
