In conversation with Omar Khorshid: The future of healthcare in WA

Health policy has rarely been higher on the international agenda than the last two years. The pandemic has seen Western Australia’s health infrastructure go through its greatest and most unexpected stress test. With recent events in mind, looking beyond this crisis and further into the future towards 2050, how might the WA health system respond to emerging challenges facing healthcare? What new funding and service models are needed to facilitate better care? Can the recent responses to the pandemic help catalyse change in the WA health sector?

Join Director of the UWA Public Policy Institute Professor Shamit Saggar as he speaks with Dr Omar Khorshid, President of the Federal Australian Medical Association, about the future of healthcare in WA. You’ll also have the chance to ask your questions about the WA medical system and workforce, healthcare trends, and what you might expect from the next thirty years.
