NEMICS Annual Forum 2019

The NEMICS Annual Forum was held on Tuesday 3rd October.  
The Forum is a great opportunity to hear about and share some of the service improvement work happening in the NEMICS region 


The Keynote address titled In Healthcare we Trust? was delivered by A/Prof Leeroy William 

One of the central messages from the presentation is trust and the importance of holism in health care; the need to put healing back at the centre

He has an adjunct professorial appointment at Monash University and is the President-elect of the Australian and New Zealand Society of Palliative Medicine.
