You are invited to join with other patients, carers and community members to have your say on the future of health care in Tasmania. Health Consumers Tasmania will host these discussion sessions over a light lunch at the following times:
Launceston, Tuesday 17 November, 30pm to 2.30pm, at the Grand Chancellor
Burnie Wednesday 18 November, 30pm to 2.30pm, at the Burnie Arts and Function Centre
Your opinions will help us feedback to the Minister for Health’s “Our Healthcare Future” discussion paper (available at https://www.health.tas.gov.au/ourhealthcarefuture), released last Friday.
Key questions from the Minister we would like to discuss with you are:
- How can we strengthen consumer engagement and participation at all levels of healthcare including:
- Personal: participation and engagement in a person’s own care
- Local: participation and engagement in service improvement at a local level
- Policy and service system: participation and engagement in planning, developing, reviewing, evaluating and reforming services at a system level?
- How can we shift the focus from hospital-based care to better community care in the community?
Please rsvp with any dietary requirements to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are unable to attend, but would still like to have a say, we encourage you to email us your thoughts. They do not have to be bound to the questions above. We greatly value your contribution and hope that by combining our perspectives we will be able to have greater impact.
