More than 400 primary health researchers and policymakers will come together to share research knowledge aimed at improving the health of all Australians at the 2013 Primary Health Care Research Conference in Sydney this week.
The three-day conference, held from July 10-12, is being hosted by the Primary Health Care Research and Information Service (PHC RIS) at Flinders University.
This year’s conference centres on the theme Allies for better primary health care, acknowledging that researchers, health practitioners and policymakers must work together as allies to ensure quality of care, quality of life and an equitable, sustainable health future.
The conference includes four plenaries, 137 concurrent sessions, five symposia, eight workshops and up to 100 poster presentations, as well as various presentations by international speakers.
Professor Martin Fortin (pictured) from the University of Sherbrooke, Quebec, will deliver a keynote address on the challenges of multi-morbidity while William H Dietz, former director of the Division of Nutrition, Physical Activity and Obesity at the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention in the USA, will deliver a presentation on the challenges of preventing and managing obesity.
