Satellite event refers to any activity which is independently organised, offered, and/or accredited by an organisation other than the Public Health Association of Australia; and held before, during or after the Public Health Prevention Conference 2018.


As information becomes available on satellite events the information will be added below.

Pre-Conference Satellite Event

Event Name: How do we do more? Systemic inquiry processes for prevention and public health

Date: Tuesday 1 May 2018

Venue: UTS Building 10 on Level 7, 235 Jones Street, Ultimo

Start Time: 9am

Finish Time: 5pm

Cost: No charge, complimentary to attend

Registration: Register via the conference online registration form hereNumbers are limited.

This workshop will introduce a systemic inquiry process as outlined by the Systems Change in Public Health Framework, developed by The Australian Prevention Partnership Centre, DHHS Tasmania and the University of Tasmania.


The workshop will provide practical activities to unpack and generate an understanding of a complex problem from the ground up, providing insights that will inform how to intervene in the problem. You will learn how to apply a suite of inter-related learning activities, from identifying a complex problem, to gaining clarity of the system, finding the points of leverage, intervening, and finally learning and adapting.


Please note, we will not be working with technology-based systems modelling tools in this workshop, nor will we be discussing how to create a systems-based approach for population health policy.

Post-Conference Satellite Event

Event Title: Dynamic simulation modelling symposium: A what-if tool for prevention policy, planning and evaluation

Date: Friday 4 May 2018

Venue: Sydney Boulevard Hotel, Sydney NSW

Start time: 12.00 noon – lunch will be included for registered participants

Finish time: 2.30pm – with networking and refreshments until 3.00pm

Cost: Free

Registration: Register via the conference online registration form here. Numbers are limited.

The Prevention Centre is pioneering the use of dynamic simulation modelling to guide public health policy, planning and evaluation in Australia.


This symposium will present the findings of our models in the areas of tobacco control, childhood overweight and obesity and gestational diabetes, and will canvas future directions for dynamic simulation modelling in Australia.

Who should attend?

This event is aimed at those who use dynamic simulation modelling, policy makers who may need to know more about our work, and researchers who are interested in participating in or using dynamic simulation modelling.

You will have the opportunity to network, share experiences, provide feedback and discuss how best to build national capacity in this area.

About dynamic simulation modelling

Dynamic simulation models are sophisticated computer models that enable decision makers to test the likely outcome of interventions or combinations of interventions before they are implemented in the real world.

Based on a variety of evidence sources such as research, expert knowledge, practice experience and data, the models are able to simulate various policy scenarios over time to measure both the effect on individuals and the system as a whole.
