AAPM aims to ensure excellence in healthcare management for better patient outcomes. As the peak association supporting practice management, AAPM provides education, support, advice and advocacy for those involved in healthcare practice management.

I have great pleasure in inviting you to join us at AAPM’s National Conference on 16-19th October in Canberra. The program includes workshops, plenaries, masterclasses and other sessions covering topics ranging from Medicare items and audits through to digital health, case studies and information on developing your practice management career path.

It’s an excellent opportunity to connect with other practice managers while you are at conference and share approaches to overcoming the daily challenges faced in your practice. Many of our members have made longstanding and valuable connections with other practice managers at past conferences that have greatly assisted their work. I look forward to meeting you at the conference!
