The Primary Health Care Research Conference is a major event in Australian general practice and primary health care research. This year’s conference theme was Inspirations, Collaborations, Solutions.
Our CEO, John G. Abbott, presented at the conference on our report, How do Canadians Rate the Health Care System? from November, 2010. The report comments on the 2010 Commonwealth Fund International Health Policy Survey results, which compares the perceptions of about 20,000 citizens from 11 OECD countries on their health care systems. Mr. Abbott discussed comparisons between Canada and Australia, and highlighted some high performing countries. You can download the full conference presentation here.
A few others have been blogging about the conference, including the Australian Croakey Blog, who reflected on how primary health care can harness the “digital revolution” as well as social media’s role within primary health care.
