The Health Professions Council of South Africa (HPCSA) hosted their inaugural national conference this past August at the Emperors Palace Convention Centre in Johannesburg, Gauteng. The HPCSA is a regulatory body which is committed to serving and protecting the public and providing guidance to registered healthcare practitioners in the industry.
The conference was attended by representatives of medical regulatory authorities in South Africa and abroad, healthcare practitioners, students and interns in the health environment, the Department of Health, various associations and societies, educational and training institutions, representatives of medical schemes, government agencies who are involved in health workforce and regulation and opinion leaders and health commentators in the health fraternity.
The conference provided an opportunity for delegates across all health sectors to engage on regulatory matters pertaining to the healthcare environment most notably on the shifting global and local healthcare trends including those such as innovation, technological advancement, the shortage of resources and financial viability of healthcare solutions. In general, the HPCSA national conference provided a platform and networking environment for healthcare practitioners across the globe to address industry challenges and develop viable solutions to these.
The HWSETA demonstrated its commitment to developing the healthcare industry by sponsoring the delegate registration fees of public sector health care practitioners to attend the conference. The HWSETA also hosted an exhibition stand and engaged conference delegates on a one to one basis over a three day period sharing strategic insights, key points and vital information about the HWSETA, further growing its support within the industry.
