Around 47% of Australians now live with chronic health conditions and 37% of all hospital admissions are related to chronic health conditions.
There is a need for significant and long-lasting change in the way chronic disease is recognised, treated, and managed in Australia.
This event is a critical platform for national discussion, thought leadership, a showcase of best practice and networking to help drive real change across Australia.
In May 2022, the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare developed and released the reporting framework for the National Strategic Framework for Chronic Conditions. The National strategy focused on three main objectives; Focus on prevention for a healthier Australia; Provide efficient, effective, and appropriate care to support people with chronic conditions to optimise quality of life; Target priority populations.
For the second iteration of this Conference, we want to grow this event, provide more updates, and progress the discussion. The feedback for this event in April was fantastic and has shaped this second iteration with speakers who are presenting ideas and policy that is having a real-world effect on current chronic disease management.
For The 2nd Chronic Disease Management Conference, which will take place on the 23-24th of November 2022 at the CommBank Stadium, we gather the nation’s experts, decisionmakers and organisations at the forefront of innovation in chronic disease management.
