SHAPE Symposium 2014

The SHAPE Symposium was held in Sydney between 9 and 11 July 2014

The Symposium brought together more than 50 health service management academics, health managers and practitioners, health leaders, and students to explore some key issues around knowledge, innovation and education which contribute to graduates that can respond to the health care challenges. Participants were inspired by world class speakers such as Professor Joseph Coyne from Washington State University, Professor Shirley Alexander from the University of Technology, Sydney and Professor Sandra Leggat from LaTrobe University.
