    Event description

    The Allied and Scientific Health Office is pleased be hosting the inaugural Allied Health Advanced Clinical Practice Symposium to be held at the SAHMRI Auditorium on Thursday 23 May 2024. Registrations at 8.30am for a prompt 9 am start.

    The event has been preceded by an Allied Health Innovation Challenge, which canvassed ideas for allied health advanced clinical practice roles from multidisciplinary healthcare teams across SA Health. The symposium will showcase: 

    • Tangible allied health workforce-based solutions to support consumer-centred care, experience and outcomes.
    • Examples of how allied health advanced clinical practice roles can address health care challenges (e.g., improving access, service / system flow, reduce wait times, avoiding unnecessary transfers of care, reducing acute re-presentations, interface with aged care / disability / primary care).
    • Potential clinical service improvements created through utilising advanced allied health skills, knowledge and/or new technology for the benefit of the consumer.
    • Examples of how allied health advanced clinical practitioners contribute to public healthcare and healthcare teams.

    Keynote Speaker Dr Jo Morris is Executive Director of Rehabilitation, Aged and Community Care and Allied Health at Canberra Health Services leading complex healthcare teams and workforce transformation. Jo has worked as an Extended Scope Physiotherapist (ESP) in Orthopaedic Triage, Emergency Department (ED) and led the introduction of ESP roles for ACT Health.
