In the past year and continuing, COVID 19 has presented many trials and tribulations to the medical and legal professions and society in general. We have endured unforeseen restrictions and challenges and had to adapt to a new world which continues to evolve. The healthcare industry is one of the sectors that has significantly evolved due to the availability of new technology in recent years. Today, the healthcare industry is becoming more and more dependent on digital technologies to improve patient-doctor communication, provide efficient clinical treatments, optimise the diagnosis of dangerous diseases, reduce public health threats, and optimise health services globally. The future of the healthcare sector will be deeply linked to technological advancements. New technologies will continue to change the traditional healthcare industry as we know it and will affect this market from diverse perspectives. The many legal issues that arise with this innovation present many challenges and opportunities.

The Medico-Legal Society of Queensland’s conference theme “The Future is Now: Medicine, Innovation and the Law” will focus on technology in medicine, where we are and where we are going.

We have a very exciting programme focussing on:

  •  Technology in Healthcare
  • Legal trends/issues
  •  Emerging technologies in healthcare

The MLSQ executive has invited pre-eminent experts from a range of professional disciplines who will together contemplate the relevant aspects of this topic. We are confident delegates will benefit not only from the practical guidance offered by our speakers but also the thoughtful discussion of these issues from various professional perspectives.

The conference will be held at the Surfers Paradise JW Marriott Resort, located at the northern end of the Gold Coast, close to popular beaches and attractions. The luxury 5-star hotel boasts brand new guest rooms, award-winning service and a covetable location on the Gold Coast.

The MLSQ annual conference provides a wonderful forum for all members of the medico-legal community to connect and discuss topical issues in a social and supportive setting.

Don’t delay your decision to register to receive your preferred accommodation, and lowest possible registration fee.

I look forward to welcoming you this year.
