AMA National Conference 2015

More than 250 delegates and observers revelled in three days of high level health policy discussions, ceremonies and a lot of socialising at the AMA National Conference in Brisbane on 29 to 31 May.

The Conference which had as its theme, Medicare: midlife crisis?, drew together practitioners, academics, operators, students, trainee doctors and media from across the country and internationally, to discuss and debate the latest challenges in health, from climate change, family violence and the treatment of asylum seekers to general practice funding and training, the outlook for public hospitals and the pitfalls of defensive medicine.

Speakers included former Prime Minister Julia Gillard, who addressed the Leadership Development Dinner, Health Minister Sussan Ley, Shadow Health Minister Catherine King, Queensland Health Minister Cameron Dick and Aspen Medical CEO Bruce Armstrong, who detailed Australia’s response to the West Africa Ebola outbreak.

Participants had plenty of opportunity to socialise, including at the President’s Cocktail Reception, the Leadership Development Dinner and the Gala Dinner.
