Diversity in Healthcare
This stream promotes sharing resources and learnings to improve the delivery of safe, quality health care for populations where there are a diverse range of requirements, expectations and needs. Topics such as cultural and linguistic considerations; identity health (including LGBTIQ+, Womens' and Mens' health); paediatrics; maternity services; and aged care will be covered in this stream.
The mental health of not only the community, but of the medical profession, is paramount as work environments become increasingly competitive, stressful and unforgiving - often in the public eye across the many social media platforms and news streams. Topics such as family conflict; caring for the carer; work/life balance in a rural community; mental health advocacy; peer support, and workforce resilience will be covered in this stream.
