We want to make sure the patient, family and carer voice is heard at all of our events.

So we're offering a limited number of supported places for Victorian health consumer representatives to attend Giant steps 2019, our first healthcare quality and safety conference.

What’s on offer?

Our aim is to make this event accessible, especially to those who are not usually able to attend Melbourne-based events. That’s why we have two sponsorship options available.

Option 1

Free registration (best suited to those who live within the Melbourne Metropolitan area*)

Option 2

Free registration and a travel subsidy of up to $100 for those outside the Melbourne Metropolitan area*)

About the event

Our first two-day healthcare quality and safety conference will explore the theme ‘Towards better safer care’ with a focus on four key topics:

  1. Quality improvement
  2. Emerging health challenges
  3. Leadership
  4. Delivering high quality care.


Date: Thursday 21 and Friday 22 November 2019

Venue: Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre
