2021 Conference

Day Hospitals Australia 2021 Online Conference 

8 – 10 September 2021 

The Day Hospitals Australia 2021 National Conference was held online from 8 – 10 September 2021.

The move to an online format provided the opportunity for all delegates across Australia to stay up to date, hear from inspirational speakers and industry leaders and  make new connections while we explore new scope and advancement of the day hospital sector in the Australian Health Care system.

As the premier event for the Day Hospital Sector, our volunteer committee worked tirelessly to create an exciting program of live speakers, presentations, panel discussions, workshops, and virtual exhibitors offering delegates the opportunity to watch, learn and network over 3 days from 8 – 10 September.
