Sustainability of Healthcare Awards and Colloquium

The Bond University Sustainability of Healthcare Awards and Colloquium were developed with the purpose of promoting and raising awareness of best practice in high value health care and recognising the achievements of those in the community who are advocates and pioneers in this area. 

Sustainable Healthcare aims to improve health outcomes while using resources wisely. Sustainable health interventions should be evidence-based, effective, minimise waste, affordable and able to be implemented in the long term without accumulating adverse consequences for society or individuals.
