This year’s theme: The Challenge of Change and Progress
“When it comes to change and progress, we often like to focus on impressive data and successful outcomes. At this year’s AHA Day, we want to continue celebrating this AND also shine a light on the challenges and imperfections that are an inevitable part of the journey. We hope the AHA workforce will be inspired to be leaders of excellence and improvement, with reassurance and encouragement that many have walked that bumpy road before.”
Allied Health Assistant Day 2023 will be an entirely online event, accessible from anywhere in Australia provided you have an internet connection and a device from which to view.
