Heatwaves and health - from impact to harm prevention

Venue:State Library of Victoria, Village Roadshow Theatrette, 179 La Trobe Street, Melbourne
Seminar date: Thursday 19th August, 2010

Seminar Program and Registration

Episodes of extreme heat, also known as heatwaves, are an important public health issue because they cause death and illness and are very likely to become more frequent and more severe in the future. Heatwaves have the greatest impact on the health of those who are least able to care for themselves, including older people, particularly those who are frail, already ill and socially isolated. It is known that many heatwave-related deaths are preventable, supporting the importance of heatwave preparedness measures.

Speaker Presentations

 Session 2: Heatwaves and the individual

Session 3: Preparing for next summer

Reviewing in-hospital mortality

Venue: Ella Latham Lecture Theatre,Royal Children's Hospital,Parkville Vic 3010.
Seminar date: Thursday 24th June, 2010

Seminar programme and registration

Review of in-hospital deaths is an integral part of good clinical practice. Audit provides the opportunity to learn about and improve practices and processes of care. Despite widespread recognition of its importance, there remains no ‘gold standard' approach to conducting mortality review. In this seminar we will hear a range of views about how to undertake an effective mortality review. Importantly, a range of leaders from both acute health and forensic medicine will discuss how they use information derived from these reviews to improve practice and processes of care.

Speaker presentations

Session 1: Policy, international perspective

Session 2: Methods for doing review

Session 3: What data should we use?

Session 4: Hospital review and discussion
