 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.

Workshop - Playing the Game: Exploring privilege and inequity in getting to the doctor

Facilitated by: Pat Neuwelt, Honorary Academic, Health Systems, School of Population Health, University of Auckland

In this interactive workshop, you will join your peers in playing a ‘Snakes and Ladders game with a difference’. The game is based on key findings from a recently completed New Zealand study of general practice reception processes, funded by the Health Research Council of New Zealand. The emphasis of the study was on understanding the ways that reception processes, at the point of entry to the health system, pose barriers to access for people who experience social marginalization.

There will be an emphasis on small group discussion. Plan for an enjoyable and informative workshop!

This workshop is option to Practice and Pharmacy Teams.
