Meeting dates: 23-24 March 2017
In a complex and ever-changing health system, challenges are inevitable.
The 'Challenges in Healthcare’ meeting gave clinicians and health administrators the opportunity to consider issues around medication safety in the digital future and bariatric surgery in the public sector.
Delegates were challenged to:
- identify the key elements of an effective bariatric surgery program in Queensland.
- articulate how clinical governance can maximise the opportunities digital technologies can bring to electronic medication management.
Among the recommendations are:
- bariatric surgery being publicly available in Queensland to specific groups of patients who will benefit the most.
- the establishment of clear clinical governance of electronic medication management.
