Disruptions in health driving better outcomes

Presenter speaking

In May 2016 Health Consumers Queensland hosted the inaugural Annual Forum in Brisbane, Queensland.

We invite you to learn from the experiences of consumers, carers, and health service staff from across Queensland and internationally, as they share the findings of their initiatives aimed at improving and strengthening consumer engagement in Queensland.

We hope the knowledge recorded at the forum increases your knowledge of best practice engagement and assists health service staff in their role, as well as our passionate and engaged consumers and carers who are the positive disrupters of the health consumer movement in Queensland.
