Join us in Alice Springs for a special conversation about remote dialysis, community-led healthcare and keeping culture strong.
Renal dialysis treatments in very remote areas are now funded through a new Medicare Benefits Schedule item number. As Australia’s first provider of very remote dialysis, we are proud of how we care for our patients in remote communities and excited about what this means for getting more people home to country.
Dates: Tuesday 9 April to Thursday 11 April 2019
The conference discussions will take place over two days on Tuesday 9 April and Wednesday 10 April in Alice Springs. Then on Thursday 11 April you can register to take a day trip to a community to see remote dialysis in action!
Venue: Alice Springs Convention Centre, Alice Springs
Cost: $400 for the two-day conference (includes all sessions and workshops as well as morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea. Dinner is also provided on day one.)
