Driving Positive Change: Harnessing the value of Community, Collaboration and Coaching.

Australia and New Zealand’s healthcare system is facing unprecedented challenges.
The population is aging, chronic disease is on the rise, and healthcare costs are increasing. Healthcare providers are struggling to keep up with demand, and patients are often left feeling frustrated and disengaged with the healthcare system. The good news is that health coaches can help bridge the gap between healthcare providers and patients, and by working together with the community, we can redefine the future of healthcare.

In 2023, our conference theme is “Driving Positive Change: Harnessing Value through Community Collaboration and Coaching.”

As recognized by both the United Nations and HCANZA’s stated mission, health is not just the absence of disease, but a state of physical, emotional, and social well-being .
We believe it is essential to promote a proactive approach to health that encourages
individuals and communities to take responsibility for their well-being by adopting healthy lifestyle habits that can reduce the risk of chronic diseases and improve overall quality of life.

Our conference focuses on empowering individuals within communities, regardless of their foundational identities such as geography, workplace, gender, nationality, or culture, to address their own health issues, mental well-being, social isolation, and other lifestyle factors that contribute to overall well-being.

We need all shoulders to the wheel to achieve this goal, which includes all communities of interest to disrupt old thinking, create and innovate health transformation in this 21st Century.

At our 2023 conference, we will explore how coaches, businesses, and community leaders can inspire and empower individuals to achieve health self-actualization, leading to an improved quality of life. We will discuss innovative strategies and best practices that promote collaboration and coaching to drive positive change, harnessing the value of community collaboration to improve overall health and well-being.

Together, we can make a significant impact on the health and well-being of individuals and communities.
