Metro North Brisbane Medicare Local‘s Taking the Pulse conference: bringing it all together on April 20th did bring it all together. After eight forums across the region what local communities regarded as the important primary health care issues for the region were presented. A wide range of local initiatives tackling many of these issues were outlined in concurrent sessions, and by over 20 exhibitors.
That Health is at some sort of crossroads is indicated by the last two plenary sessions: “Whatever happened to the Health Reform?’ and ‘Keeping it all together’.
As Conference Cartoonist it was my brief to capture the messages, and the feeling, throughout the day.
