Conference Sponsorship Positions

Optimising Health: Salutogenic approaches to health practice, policy, research and education


Date: 26–27 October 2016

Venue: Anne Harding Conference Centre, University of Canberra

The theory of salutogenesis is concerned with the genesis of health. What creates health? What moves individuals in the direction of health? What would health care, policy, research and education look like if it focused on factors that supported health and wellbeing rather than those that cause disease?

This is a multi-disciplinary event bringing national and international speakers and delegates from a variety of disciplines together to be informed and inspired to challenge, re-think and re-vision healthcare; focusing on wellness rather than illness. This boutique conference will provide you with ample opportunity to meet with keynote and plenary speakers and others to explore these questions and more.

HCCA will sponsor two consumer representatives to attend this event. Sponsorship includes the cost of the event. All HCCA consumer representatives are encouraged to apply, however priority will be given to members of the Access and Design Consumer Reference Group. Please contact the HCCA office on 6230 7800 if you are interested in applying for sponsorship to this event and require transport assistance.

Nominations for this opportunity close on Wednesday 28 September 2016.
