North Sydney HealthPathways Symposium

Sydney North Health Network (SNHN) and Northern Sydney Local Health District (NSLHD) invites leaders and influencers in our North Sydney health system including Chief Medical Officers, Chiefs of Medicine & Surgery, Department Directors and Managers, Senior Clinicians, Directors of Nursing, GP Liaison Officers, Outpatient Department Managers, Clinical Leaders from Primary Care, General Practice, Allied Health and Community Care Services, Patient Flow Managers, Integration Managers, and Service & Quality Improvement project staff to the North Sydney HealthPathways Symposium.

What is HealthPathways?

HealthPathways is a local agreement between the Local Health District (LHD) and SNHN. It will contain locally agreed, evidence informed, clinical and referral guidance on managing over 600 conditions.

The Symposium will include presentations and group discussion on:

  • The challenges in our local health system from a growing and ageing population, increasing burden of chronic
    disease, pressure on urgent and emergency care services, and growing and poorly differentiated waiting lists.
  • Experiences from the Canterbury (NZ) health system where they’ve managed to flatten acute demand growth, reduce
    wait times, and increase elective throughput by adopting new approaches and tools for managing their health system.
  • The HealthPathways methodology for achieving local agreements on managing over 600 clinical conditions, and the resulting HealthPathways guidance that is valued and used by a wide spectrum of local clinicians.
  • The Central Sydney experience of adopting and adapting HealthPathways to their local circumstances.
  • The program of work that we will be undertaking to make HealthPathways relevant to our local health system and valued and useful to our clinicians.
