Heart Week Workshop and Social Dinner: New Details!

ACRA-Qld and the Heart Foundation are pleased to invite you to attend an education and social evening to celebrate Heart Week on Friday the 5th May.


Please note this workshop will now be held at the Mater Medical Centre at 5:30pm with a pay-your-own-way informal social dinner at the Ship Inn to follow at 7:30pm.  Due to this venue change we can now offer the workshop component free to all ACRA-Qld members.  

The workshop will provide the opportunity to interact with a variety of speakers and colleagues about issues surrounding the key theme of 2017’s Heart Week: Hypertension.   This will include a 20-minute keynote presentation by Maria Packard, Nutritional Manager at the Heart Foundation, covering key nutritional messages in regards to hypertension.  The evening will then take an interactive format with small group discussion and table-top presentations by a range of invited guests including practitioners from local hypertension clinics and cardiac rehabilitation programs. You will even have the opportunity to interact with the ACRA-Qld EMC on an informal basis, learn about the planned 2018 Brisbane conference, and let us know any issues you would like to see raised on a national level.

For all those interested, a table at the Ship Inn (Southbank) has been booked for 7:30pm to provide attendees the opportunity to catch-up over an informal drink or dinner (at your own expense) at the conclusion of the workshop. The  venue is only a short walk from the workshop and offers a range of well-priced food options.

If you would like to join us on the evening and stay updated on the final program please register at: https://www.trybooking.com/POMB.

Workshop registration includes a welcome drink and nibbles on arrival, tea and coffee, and all educational activities. Cost is free for current ACRA-Qld members and $15 for non-members.

This educational event represents 1.5 hours of training in Continuing Professional Development under the Australian health practitioners regulation agency guidelines. As such it would be the equivalent of 1.5 CPD points. Certificates of attendance will be provided for all those who participate in the workshop.
