Older Australians rely heavily on primary health care to support them to live healthy, active, independent and contributing lives. But our systems of primary care do not always deliver what is needed.
Join the COTA Australia National Policy Forum to discuss issues affecting older people such as: access and affordability in a range of primary care services; the link between primary care and broader wellbeing; the best models of primary care; and how primary care can address the needs of a diverse older population. The forum will look at recent policy changes in this area and ask how they are likely impact on the health and wellbeing of older Australians. A great line-up of speakers from across the primary health care field will lead the discussions, and more.
This event goes from 9am-5pm. More info and RSVP HERE.
