Better Health, Together Stakeholder Forum

Professor Hal Swerissen


Did you meet Professor Hal Swerissen at our second Better Health Together Forum?

Professor Swerissen presented a compelling vision for primary care and challenged us all to collectively approach the unique opportunities we currently have in WA.

Professor Swerissen is a leader in policy, management and program development, particularly in the analysis, evaluation and quality improvement in health, community services and tertiary education. As well as being a Fellow at the Grattan Institute, he is also an Emeritus Professor at La Trobe University, a Director of Murray PHN and a Director of the Bendigo Kangan Institute.

He has worked in senior roles as an advisor to the Australian Government on health and community services, and an advisor to the Victorian Government. He has published more than 150 books, articles, reports and conference papers on health and community services, policy and program development and evaluation.

In response to feedback from the Better Health, Together Forum held earlier this year, the event included networking on arrival and a collaborative question time after Professor Swerissen’s presentation.

When: Friday, 1 November 2019

Time: Registration and networking from 8.30am, Forum from 9.15am–12pm

Venue: Technology Park Function Centre, Technology, 2 Brodie Hall Drive, Bentley
