    On behalf of the Royal Australasian College of Medical Administrators (RACMA), Annual Scientific Meeting Steering Committee it gives us great pleasure to welcome everyone to this Brisbane event to be held at the Brisbane Exhibition & Convention Centre from 12 to 14 October 2016. Our theme this year is “Harm Free Health Care”.

    Clinical governance is core to the practice of the speciality of medical administration and the key feature of clinical governance is patient safety. The challenge for all of us is whether Harm Free Health Care can be provided to patients. In itself, posing this question is controversial. This conference is designed to challenge us, and debate whether health care can be Harm Free and what practical approaches can be considered.

    As one of our flagship events, the RACMA Annual Scientific Meeting is expected to attract around 250 delegates to Brisbane who will be a mixture of senior managers, clinical specialists with management roles, researchers, educators, policy makers, and health ministry and health provider executives.

    We look forward to seeing you there!
