Second Stronger Together Allied Health Conference a raging success.

The Hunter, New England and Central Coast Primary Health Network’s (HNECC PHN) second #StrongerTogether Allied Health Conference was held in May at the Hunter Valley. The event was a fantastic success, with face-to-face tickets selling out, 127 delegates in attendance and more than 100 livestreaming.

A wide range of Allied Health Professions were represented including Occupational Therapy, Physiotherapy, Dietitians, Speech Pathology, Pharmacy, Psychology, Exercise Physiology and Osteopathy and more.

Keynote presentations were provided by NSW Chief Allied Health Officer Andrew Davison who spoke of the Allied Health Landscape in the current and near future, and para athlete Christie Dawes who provided a frank account of her experience growing up as a paraplegic.

A panel featuring Chelsea Felkai, Pharmacist, Chris Goward, Execrcise Physiologist, Deb Walter, Practice Owner and manager and Richard Nankervis, HNECC PHN CEO led a robust discussion on the challenges faced by Allied Health professionals.

The day was also enhanced by the participation of a wide range of sponsors, providing resources and support to the conference delegates. Sponsors included Paratus Clinical Research, Independent Living Australia, Carers NSW, Diabetes Australia, SimpliMove Health, Let’s Grow Together and I am Awesome.

The feedback from participants regarding the quality and mix of speakers was overwhelmingly positive and the PHN was delighted to see that 96% of attendees reported that their professional relationships had expanded through their attendance at the conference, 80% reporting a significant expansion.

At the conference close, attendees were asked what they got out of the day; the results are displayed in the word cloud below.
