11:30 AM Spotlight Interview: An Alternative Way of Thinking: How Do We Make Our Hospitals and Healthcare System More Sustainable to Meet Future Needs?

The Australian healthcare system delivers exceptional outcomes for patients and governments have committed billions of dollars to infrastructure projects to meet the needs of our growing population. Yet, have you ever wondered if our healthcare system is sustainable? Sharon will discuss:

  • The financial and emission burdens associated with healthcare provision, including low value care and potentially preventable hospital admissions
  • Emerging directions in low carbon models of care and its implications on infrastructure design
  • How we can change what we do inside our healthcare facilities in order to meet the needs of the population and the planet
