The 7th Australasian Mental Health Outcomes and Information Conference

Call for abstracts

Conference streams

UPDATE: The AMHOIC 2019 call for abstracts process has now closed. The full conference programme is due for release in early August.

If you missed our call for abstracts process, but would still like to explore whether your abstract could contribute to the critical conversations at AMHOIC 2019, please contact Mark Smith.

“Joining the dots” acknowledges the significant evolution of the mental health and addictions information and outcomes journey over the past 14 years, while recognising the need for bold and fresh thinking on the complex systematic challenges our sector continues to experience. 

AMHOIC 2019 is an opportunity for our sector to continue to role model unity and lead the progression of critical conversations on the use of information to drive forward improvements to achieve better wellbeing outcomes. 

It is a space to create new connections, share learnings and talk about how we break down enduring barriers to using and sharing information to make a positive difference in mental health and addiction recovery journeys. 

The conference streams for AMHOIC 2019 have been deliberately designed to align to the recommendations in He Ara Oranga: Report of the Government Inquiry into Mental Health and Addiction. 

AMHOIC 2019 Conference streams:

  • Information for prevention – Collecting and using information to deliver interventions and initiatives that allow us to reach people early and prevent crisis.
  • Putting people at the centre – Making sense of people’s information in their context to tailor support and improve outcomes. 
  • Working together to improve wellbeing – Breaking down barriers to sharing information with the right people, at the right time to improve the wellbeing of people who experience mental health and/or addiction challenges.
  • System and delivery change – Using information to identify and drive changes in how we deliver services that meet the needs of all people. 

Abstracts received through the call for abstracts process present real examples of how workforces across New Zealand and Australia are influencing change and making an impact through information.
