2012 PHC Research Conference: Preliminary Program

Inform, influence, implement: Research improving policy and practice

The 2012 Conference will provide essential opportunities for you to present and hear about the latest research, share ideas, debate critical primary health care matters, form collaborations and network with speakers and other delegates.

Building on from previous conferences and taking into account the increase in primary health care research, the program is an exciting blend of opportunities for presentations with workshops, symposia, poster and paper sessions, as well as the coveted PHCRIS Best Poster and the Australian Association of Academic Primary Care (AAAPC) Best Paper Presentation at the AAAPC plenary session.

We advise all delegates to leave plenty of time to arrive in Canberra for the Conference. In the past, some delegates have missed the Wednesday morning sessions due to unavoidable flight delays or similar issues. It is therefore recommended that you plan to arrive on the Tuesday evening to ensure you do not miss any of the Conference program. The Welcome Reception and early registration will be available from 1800 for delegates to attend at the National Convention Centre, Canberra. See you there!
