SFT-18 Conference announced for Darwin

The University of Queensland’s Centre for Online Health in conjunction with the Australasian Telehealth Society is very pleased to announce plans for the 2018 International Conference on Successes and Failures in Telehealth (SFT-18).

SFT-18 and the 9th Annual Meeting of the Australasian Telehealth Society will be held at the Darwin Convention Centre from 22-24 October 2018.

We would like to offer you the opportunity to secure your role at the SFT conference – which is now recognised as one of the leading academic telehealth conferences in the Southern Hemisphere.   The SFT conference is an annual event which has been running for almost two decades, providing a unique forum which explores both successes and failures in telehealth.

This year, the program will offer optional workshops and the choice of presentations in the categories of formal research and clinical case reports.  Sessions will also be structured to encourage audience participation with question and answer sessions; and panel discussions on specific topics of interest.  The SFT program will offer a diverse range of presentations on a variety of important telehealth formats, and also an industry showcase session, poster presentations and telehealth demonstrations.

SFT-18 is expected to attract around 200 delegates including academics, doctors, nurses, allied health professionals, government representatives, policy advisers, health Informatics and information technology leaders, educators and managers.  The SFT conference is an interactive experience which promotes engagement, innovation, critical debate and future planning.

SFT is the premier telehealth event for industry partners – who are contributing to the future of telehealth and digital healthcare.  The delivery of a trade show featuring the latest products and services available in telehealth; is a highly valued feature of the SFT conference.

We hope you can join us in Darwin!
