Compass Teaching & Learning Conference

The Compass Teaching and Learning Conference is Northern Territory PHN incorporating Rural Workforce Agency NT’s premier professional development and networking event for primary health care professionals.

In August 2019, we welcomed over 400 delegates to the Darwin Convention Centre to explore the conference theme Uncharted Territory: The future of primary health care. 

Listen to the presentations from the 2019 conference, focusing in on the topic streams of climate change, technology and innovation, workforce and prevention.
