The Albanese Government is moving into high gear on a number of fronts in regard to health sector reform (such as the Strengthening Medicare Taskforce (SMT). The Canberra Roadshow proved to be an ideal opportunity to invite nursing and health sector peak bodies, authorities, and policy makers and other stakeholders to discuss and find common ground on the issues being examined by the SMT, as well as influence the topics to be discussed at the next Taskforce meeting.
The event was a big success, with APNA’s CEO Ken Griffin and President Karen Booth joined by representatives from Family Planning NSW, the ANMF, AHHA, ACT PHN, AHPA, Australian College of Paramedicine, ACMHN, the Heart Foundation, the NSWRDN and CATSINaM, amongst other organisations.
This meeting proved to be an excellent opportunity to discuss the topics to be discussed at the next Taskforce meeting. Other topics discussed included:
The Roundtable also provided an opportunity to find common ground with allied organisations on the most pressing issues impacting on patient care and primary health care nursing, as well as examine innovative solutions for how they can be addressed.
