Description of event:
NSW Health's Regional Health Division will present an overview of the new Regional Health Plan, with a particular emphasis on actions to be taken within the strategic priority of 'Keep people healthy and well through prevention, early intervention and education'. There will be a focus on how health promotion practitioners can contribute towards achieving this strategy and improving health outcomes for people in regional NSW as a result.
A panel discussion and Q&A session after the presentation will provide an opportunity for participants to ask questions about the Plan, allow for discussion on how the Plan could be practically implemented, and discuss opportunities presented by the Plan.
