Health System Reform

On Thursday April 14 the Committee for Economic Development of Australia (CEDA) will host a luncheon featuring Department of Health acting director general Dr Neale Fong at the Hyatt Regency Perth. With Western Australians currently enjoying a high standard of health, and health systems around the world confronting the impacts of ageing populations and endemic chronic diseases, WA is facing its own unique complications. The paradox of reform in the health system is that while clinical practice is adept at embracing change and innovation, the organisation and management of those practices have proven to be steadfastly resistant to changing structures and management practices. Dr Fong will speak on the urgent need to reform the WA health system before it reaches a crisis, and how to achieve this by embracing innovation, changing the way services are delivered, and by developing new and more effective partnerships with the private sector and with the community. Registration for the luncheon can be made for $85 for CEDA members and $97 for non-members. For further information phone Lisa Scaffidi at CEDA on 9228 2155 or email
