CME - How will technology change general practice?

CME - How will technology change general practice?

As part of the College's GP - Heart of the Community seminar series, the Nelson-Marlborough Faculty warmly invites you to join fellow College members for a collegial catch-up and presentation on technology in general practice by Arturo Pelayo.

Arturo lends his expertise as an innovation strategist. This role has him working with organisations in Germany, the USA, Mexico and New Zealand, helping them to meet the challenges of unstoppable change in a positive and proactive manner.

In a recent interview with The Spinoff, Arturo touched on the opportunities for equal accessibility that technology affords a developing world.

“Rather than hacking existing systems for accessibility purposes, Pelayo demands his developers design for accessibility first…a minimum viable product provides a foundation on which the rest of the user base can operate.” – Don Rowe, The Spinoff

Attendees will consider how technology is changing general practice and the primary healthcare sector, identifying opportunities and barriers, and developing a mandate for change.

Arturo is an avid futurist, and attendees will no doubt enjoy discussing the potential and scope for innovation in general practice and primary healthcare with him

This is a free event for College members.

Nibbles will be served from 6.30pm - 7.00pm, with the presentation running from 7.00pm - 8.00pm

 Have you implemented a new initiative that you would be willing to share? Do you have any new ideas that would benefit from wider discussion? Let us know by emailing them through to Sarah.Foster@nbph.org.nz

 This 90min meeting is endorsed for 2 hours of CME/CNE including the recommended reading below.

 For all the talk about quality healthcare, systems performance has frozen in time. Only 50-60% of care has been delivered in line with level 1 evidence or consensus based guidelines for at least a decade and a half12345; around a third of medicine is waste, with no measurable effects or justification for the considerable expenditure6789; and the rate of adverse events across healthcare has remained at about one in 10 patients for 25 years.10111213 Dealing with this stagnation has proved remarkably difficult—so how do we tackle it in a new, effective way?  https://www.bmj.com/content/361/bmj.k2014

Registrations for this meeting are essential and will close Tuesday 19th June.
