The conference program centered on the theme "Primary Health Care: Keeping people well and out of hospital" with three streams focusing on: Healthy Communities, Connecting Care and Fostering Capacity. The conference chair was Dr Norman Swan. Delegates gave positive about the conference program and the pre-conference workshops which included Indigenous health were well attended.
