Health Policy Forum: Sustainable Future for Health

18th July 2018, 1pm - 3pm,  Murdoch University


The School of Business and Governance and the Sir Walter Murdoch School, together with the Australasian College of Health Service Management (ACHSM), invite you to the Health Policy Forum "Sustainable Future for Health" on the 18th of July at Murdoch University (WA).

Despite good performance and results over the last 10 years in quality and safety of care, Western Australia’s health system faces huge challenges: health expenditure is growing at an unsustainable rate, public hospitals cost 20 percent more than the national average, and State debt is increasing.

According to the Sustainable Health Review, the main risk factor are WA’s growing and ageing population, the high cost of chronic diseases, and our low number of GPs per capita compared to other States.

A patient-centered health care system, investments in new technologies, promotion of healthier lifestyles to reduce chronic diseases, and better partnerships across sectors are needed to reduce expenditures and improve health outcomes.

This policy forum will investigate some of these specific reform options, drawing on potential strategies to adapt Australia’s healthcare system for current and future challenges.

Time: 12:30 - 13:30

Venue: Building 513 Learning Link LL 1.003

 (date posted: February 2, 2017)

MARTIN.jpg

Can ‘contested research’ reduce wasteful and harmful over-treatment of ADHD and other psychiatric disorders?

Dr Martin Whitely is a prominent Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder child prescribing critic. He acknowledges bias by mental health over-diagnosis critics - just like commercial and professional bias in research conducted by intervention proponents - can corrupt research outcomes. He contends ‘contested research’, where researchers with competing perspectives negotiate research questions and methodologies in open processes, could provide a robust evidence base to guide medical, psychiatric and education practice. In this seminar Dr Whitely will identify several potential research projects relating to ADHD and other mental health conditions, and invite participation from potential research partners, including those with differing perspectives.
