Dare to Design Our Health Future

If you are interested or involved in our health system – as a patient, family member, service provider, policy maker or entrepreneur – then join Kairos Now as we Dare to Design, the future of chronic care and shape how patients can be cared for in their homes.

With key public health policies and implementation plans forging ahead now, Australia is well positioned to understand what changes are possible. The question is how a new system will be developed and delivered.

This one-day workshop puts the needs of patients and carers at the centre of the discussion and focuses on three key areas: chronic health, mental health and cancer. By collaborating and using Kairos Now’s Design Thinking framework, it is possible to understand our different perspectives and discover what is really needed to make Australia’s new frontiers of integrated public health ‘work’.

Be inspired by leading experts addressing complex problems with new approaches
◦ John McGuire: Chief Innovation Officer, Aurecon Group
◦ Phil Preston: Shared Value Expert, The Collaborative Advantage
◦ Mieke van der Bijl-Brouwer: Senior Lecturer, UTS Faculty of Transdisciplinary Innovation

The output of this fun, creative, collaborative session includes collating recommendations on the best ways to deliver integrated healthcare and shaping a summary report to be delivered to government.
