The first speakers for the 42nd World Hospital Congress have been announced, and will join a lineup of health leaders in Brisbane this October.
During the announcement last week, Australian Healthcare and Hospitals Association chief executive Alison Verhoeven said delegates would have a valuable opportunity to network with the sector's leading professionals.
"Each of the speakers exemplifies our program themes of Innovate, Integrate, Inspire, and our commitment to a health system where patients are at the centre, and value is the goal," she said.
Speakers include: #hellomynameis movement co-founder Chris Pointon, Nuffield Trust chief executive Nigel Edwards, University of Queensland Professor Claire Jackson, and author Dr Robert Pearl.
Speakers will present on topics from compassionate health care, terminal illness, sustainability and new models of delivery, to integration, forming a better primary healthcare system, chronic disease and affordability.
More speakers are expected to be announced later this month.
The 42nd World Hospital Congress will take place from October 10 to 12, and will be presented by the Australian Healthcare and Hospitals Association in partnership with the International Hospital Federation and Queensland Health's Clinical Excellence Division.
The forum aims to facilitate discussion about best practice and leadership in hospital and healthcare management.
Registrations are now open for the event, and speakers can also register.
