Held every two years, the conference is designed to present the latest and most thought-provoking content in the medicines and health environment, delivered by international and nationally acclaimed experts.

It is a unique cross-disciplinary event, bringing together some of the most influential organisations, individuals and decision-makers in the health sector to debate and discuss quality use of medicines, diagnostics and health data challenges and opportunities.

Attracting people from all sectors of the health industry, NMS is a rare opportunity to network, share expertise, ideas and innovations.

Evolving systems | Reimagining policies | Clinical innovations

For many years in Australia, we’ve talked about the future of personalised medicines and disruptive innovation. We are now at a stage where advances predicted in previous years are here.

At the same time, we are recognising changes in our approach to health outcomes, from focusing on population health outcomes, to a new present where individual factors are better understood.

At this event, we will present discussions and scenarios from Australia and around the world to demonstrate the impacts and opportunities of this current future. We will contextualise real world examples of the impact that personalised medicine and other disruptive innovations are having now, and how they are influencing health decision-making at all levels.
