The Symposium Committee members of Dr. Sharyn Smith (Chair), Dr. Darren Powrie and Dr. Kim Hansen who have been organising the Queensland Autumn Symposium for over ten years are delighted to announce the 16th Annual QLD Autumn Symposium. 

With the wealth of expertise and experience, the QLD Autumn Symposium Committee have grown the Symposium from a small meeting, gaining momentum every year to successfully delivering an event that has sold out in the past four years. 

This year the Symposium will be a one-day conference, being held on Thursday 3rd June 2021.

Plenary Session - Not to be missed!

Titled: Walk the Line 

An interactive panel discussion with members from diverse healthcare backgrounds. It will explore the fine line we walk every day at work balancing our duty of care to our patients with looking after ourselves. Topics will include occupational violence and its widespread effects, your legal rights if you are filmed by patients at work (spoiler alert: it's more complicated than you might think), and ways we can do better for everyone involved.
