COTA Queensland Chief Executive Mark Tucker-Evans spoke to the inaugural intake of the Queensland Health Graduate Program about the importance of putting health consumers (patients and their families and carers) at the heart of an integrated health system.
That is, the health system needs to be co-designed with the users of the health care system not by clinicians and bureaucrats.
Mark is joining with the leaders of Healthy@Home Consortium for a Strategic Planning retreat to identify the broad direction of the consortium for the period 2018-2020.
The Healthy@Home Consortium auspiced by the Brisbane North PHN delivers CHSP services within the Brisbane region. COTA ensures that the members are consumer focused.
