Hosted by the University of Sydney, the University of Melbourne, and the University of New South Wales (UNSW), Digital Health Week is an opportunity for anyone interested in digital health to participate in a program of virtual events and share research and ideas.
It is designed to be both informative, provocative, and a showcase of the innovative work being undertaken in digital health across the University of Sydney, the University of Melbourne, UNSW, and beyond. Digital Health Week 2023 will bring together researchers, health services, industry, and the community to build person-centred eHealth collaborations.
“Hope not hype”
Our ongoing vision for the Digital Health Week events is to have diverse speakers who challenge us and spark discussions that can help us all to create and use technology in ways that promote more inclusive healthcare and wellbeing.
This year’s theme will have a focus on exploring several concepts centred around hope for a better future:
Harnessing the disruption – what have we learnt from recent rapid changes, challenges, and chaos that can be used to improve digital health systems and outcomes?
Inclusive and collaborative – how can we nurture value-based, person-centred, and connected digital health care, ensuring living experience voices guide digital health initiatives?
Functional, ethical, and sustainable – how do we build diverse, considered, and ethical technologies that work and are equitable, now and into the future?
Once again, three keynote sessions will be spaced across the three-day event. The first session on Tuesday will be a keynote by Associate Professor Rashina Hoda, the second session on Wednesday will feature Professor Farah Magrabi, and the third session on Thursday will include a keynote by Gillian Mason followed by a panel discussion with other healthcare consumers and academics. Digital Health Week will again also feature several abstract, networking, and ePoster sessions showcasing an exciting array of Digital Health projects and initiatives.
Accessibility note: For the three keynote sessions, Auslan interpreters will be present and a live typist will be providing closed captioning on Zoom.
