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

26 Sep 2016 - 27 Sep 2016. Ann Harding Conference Centre. University of Canberra, ACT

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.

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 boutique conference will provide you with ample opportunity to meet with keynote and plenary speakers and others to explore these questions and more. We are proud to announce that Bengt Lindstrom (Professor of Salutogenesis) from Norway is the keynote speaker and we also welcome five Australian plenary speakers presenting on topics ranging from health facility design, mental health, organisational change, childbirth and women and aging.
