Nambucca & Macksville Clinical Society

Managing Care When Access is Limited

How do we bridge the gap between medical information and implementation when growing demand for service provision is not readily met?

Kick off the evening with some dinner and networking before exploring local access issues from an interdisciplinary point of view. Hear from local health professionals about local services to discuss how we can support patients on long specialist waiting lists. You’ll also hear about how you can modify your language and understanding of the patient so they can better interact with the local health system.
