Post-Congress Tours

Australia is the world’s sixth largest country and each of our state and territory health services have different challenges and approaches. This post-Congress tour will offer delegates the opportunity to visit and learn from the New South Wales state approach.

The NSW tour is organised by the NSW Department of Health. Questions and expressions of interest should be directed to the relevant organisation via the contact listed in the information flyer below.

New South Wales Health Study Tour

Date: 15-16 October 2018
Location: Sydney, New South Wales (NSW)

NSW is home to one third of the Australian population. NSW Health is the largest health care system in Australia, and one of the largest in the world with 228 public hospitals providing services and employing around 114,000 staff.

With an ageing population and a growing number of people living with chronic or complex health conditions, people’s health needs are changing and demands on the health system are increasing. NSW Health is responding to these challenges by investing in new, innovative models of integrated care, transforming the health system to routinely deliver person-centered, seamless, efficient and effective care, particularly for people with complex, long term conditions.

On this two-day study tour, participants will visit the NSW Ministry of Health, some of Sydney’s publicly funded hospitals and tour a major health precinct. Participants will also visit the NSW HElath State-wide Biobank and learn about how augmented reality, Virtual Surgical Planning (VSP), 3D-printing and bioprinting are changing the landscape of surgery.
