REGISTER NOW for CHA Paediatric Units Face-to-Face Insight Forum 28 – 29 October 2024 – Sydney NSW

This Insight Forum offers a rich 2-day multidisciplinary meeting of sharing learning and networking. Whether you work directly with patients or are supporting clinicians to deliver safe, high-quality care to children and families, this meeting provides an opportunity to network with peers from Paediatric Units across Australia and New Zealand, to share insights on common challenges and to learn about successes in meeting the needs of children & their families.

The CHA community brings together people from all disciplines and a multitude of roles who have a common passion for making a difference to children and families requiring hospital care.  This not to be missed meeting will provide an opportunity to tap into the rich expertise of peers who really ‘get’ the challenges and opportunities of delivering care outside the tertiary children’s hospitals.  The program is specifically designed to provide practical examples of innovative approaches to common challenges while giving time for participants to share ideas and learnings with a multitude of other paediatric teams in both roundtable and whole group discussions.   

What will the program cover?
