World renowned experts in the healthcare quality movement will explore the role of quality at the International Health Care Conference, 25-28 September in Sydney.

The four day conference will bring together the best international and Australian minds to explore the key debate – ‘Quality care: Does it make a difference?’

Focusing on the central role of the patient in the journey to better quality health care and health outcomes, the conference will cover the role of technology and innovation in practice, integrated primary health care, the evolving role of practice management and practical strategies for accreditation.


A joint initiative of Quality Innovation Performance (QIP) and the Australian Association of Practice Managers Ltd (AAPM), the International Health Care Conference is Australia’s largest health care conference.

Group CEO of Quality Innovation Performance (QIP), Dr Stephen Clark said “The debate over how to improve quality is one of the most important issues facing health care practice today.”

“The goal of the conference is to engage delegates with practical strategies for implementing quality improvement through their everyday operations,” says Dr Clark.

The conference will bring together health practitioners and specialists across general practice, allied health, dentistry, diagnostic imaging, physiotherapy, government, hospitals and Medicare Locals.

The program which includes plenary sessions, hands-on workshops and interactive sessions with international leaders and national experts has been developed in consultation with key health organisations to ensure the sessions offer valuable learning for all health professionals. Delegates attending the conference can earn QI & CPD points with their relevant membership body.
