Primary Health Care Conference - less than two weeks to go!
Wednesday, June 05 2019
Adelaide PHN and Country SA PHN's jointly hosted SA Primary Health Care Conference is almost here (Friday 14 and Saturday 15 June 2019)!
We have received a huge level of interest from health professionals across South Australia - the main conference is sold out and only a few places remain on our GP-only Category 1 Mental Health Workshop. We have a record number of sponsors and exhibitors this year, and a great line-up of speakers!
The two days will provide delegates with the opportunity to engage with a range of experts through key note presentations, workshops and panel discussions.

- Mental Health Workshops
We are excited to be holding Mental Health Workshops on Friday 14 June.
The Mental Health Workshop (non-GP) is at capacity, but we do have limited places left for the GP-Only workshop. If you are a GP interested in low intensity, moderate and chronic/complex primary mental health treatments, and are available Friday 14 June from 8.00am to 5.00pm - please register here, category 1 accreditation applies.
We hope the SA Primary Health Care Conference leaves delegates inspired and ready to continue making a difference in primary health care, with new solutions to old problems.
