A climate for change in a familiar setting

We’re living in a time of tectonic shifts. Even if we were already aware of the inequities in the current healthcare system, and the influence of external factors such as technology and climate, the added crisis of a global pandemic has starkly highlighted the need for change.

COVID-19 has shown us change can be made quickly, and people can respond, when pushed, to make large transformative leaps in healthcare.
Vaccines approved in months, not years.
Workplaces and work practices altered beyond recognition in a matter of weeks.
Widespread adoption of new technology to aid interaction and collaboration.
Telehealth becoming the norm rather than the exception.
It is these transformative possibilities and this climate for change that RACP Congress 2022 will explore.
We will look at what just happened over the past two years, what is happening now and implications for the future. Under the theme of 'A climate for change' RACP Congress 2022 is coming to you from the Melbourne Exhibition Centre.
From Thursday, 12 May, this Congress promises to deliver a thought-provoking program that will explore not only the drivers of change but the ways we as physicians respond, refocus, and drive positive change in the future.
“RACP Congress 2022 will allow us to build on some of the discussions that we began at last year’s Congress,” Congress Lead Fellow Dr Niroshini Kennedy says.
Be a part of discussions about preserving the momentum of change and redesigning systems to positively impact the future of medicine, both in practice and in delivery.
Make your voice heard on how our College needs to meet that future. Offering both an in-person experience, along with the opportunity to participate in the program virtually, RACP Congress 2022 will bring together a worldwide program of experts.
Join us for sessions exploring preparedness and protocols that will improve response and outcomes.
“There is definitely a climate for change. We have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity as physicians to use the lessons from the pandemic to rebuild and redesign a more sustainable, equitable and adept health system that, as the RACP motto states, serves the health of our people.”
Dr Niroshini Kennedy
Effective networks, more important than ever The last two years have shown not only the importance of good communication between peers and colleagues, but also the value of having a solid network to draw on.
Networks provide timely access to information, professional advice and much needed support.
With three days of face-to-face sessions, breakout spaces and opportunities to connect, RACP Congress 2022 will offer you many chances to establish new networks and rebuild those already established.
So much CPD in one location Packed with valuable sessions that contribute to your CPD, RACP Congress is a great place to learn. At RACP Congress 2022, there will be many chances to earn CPD credits and stay current with latest research and developments across specialties.
Unable to join us in Melbourne? RACP Congress 2022 will once again be offering a virtual ticket. Experience a 3D interactive environment that includes access to the recorded sessions. Participate on the day through Q&A opportunities, poster sessions, a 3D exhibition hall and educational resources, and then revisit Congress sessions at your leisure.
Build your practice Building an effective practice means constantly staying on top of what is happening in your field.
Featuring discussions about changes in technology, Division and Faculty updates, and a host of other expert led sessions, RACP Congress 2022 will be a great way to ensure that you are building your future.
