2:40 PM SPOTLIGHT INTERVIEW: An Alternative Way of Thinking – Can we make our healthcare system more sustainable?

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?  

In this interview, Catherine and Sharon will discuss the financial and emission burdens associated with healthcare provision, including low value care and potentially preventable hospital admissions, and explore emerging directions in low carbon Models of Care. How can we change what we do inside our healthcare facilities, in order to meet the needs of the population and the planet?
