Compass is our premier professional development and networking event for people working in primary health care in the NT. We are committed to supporting remote health professionals to access learning, development and networking opportunities.


We have made the difficult decision to postpone Compass to 2022.  We’re first and foremost committed to the health and safety of the community, including the Territory’s health workforce. The continuing challenges presented by COVID-19 mean that we’re looking at new dates in 2022.

How do I register?

Registration for the conference is FREE. Registration will re-open in 2022.

This year's theme

The theme for this year is ‘Navigating the way forward’. After a tumultuous 2020 and continued challenges in 2021, it’s time to look forward and celebrate the resilience of our primary health care workforce and focus on wellbeing, as well as our lessons from the past year.

Who should attend Compass?

Practitioners of all specialities and anyone who is interested in learning and sharing their professional knowledge of primary health care in their regional or remote setting, including:

  • GPs and other doctors working in primary health care
  • Allied health professionals
  • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health practitioners
