New: Conference Program Now Available

“Change itself is what fascinates me. I am drawn, as a moth to the flame, by edge situations, by situations of metamorphosis”

Annie Proulx

Due to the current COVID-19 situation, the Health Libraries Inc (HLI) Conference Committee had made the decision to move our Conference to an exclusively online platform for 2021 (via Zoom). We hope that you will still join us online for our Conference on Friday 5th November, 9:20 am to 3:10 pm, 2021! We have a packed program including great opportunities to network with our generous sponsors. Presentations and lightning talks will be recorded and made available to registrants to view for a limited time Post-Conference!

Full Program now available- HLI Conference 2021 (Online)

Keynote speaker – Dr Doug Lynch
"Dr Doug Lynch is a Critical Care Doctor, educator and advocate. He has trained in multiple “specialties”; anaesthetics, emergency, intensive care, aero-medical retrieval, history of art, law, luggage making, public health and remote area medicine. He describes himself as a “Generalist” in the medical world and in most other worlds too.

In each of the areas that he has worked Doug has gravitated towards education. He is the former state-wide education officer for the Royal Flying Doctor Service (Queensland Section). He is a dedicated supporter of and a contributor to the “#FOAMed” movement. FOAMed stands for Free Open Access Medical Education. He has recorded hundreds of educational podcasts and has recently founded a new education charity, The Institute of Enquiring Minds, in Melbourne, Australia.

Since the start of the Pandemic Doug has been working at Monash Health, Victoria’s largest healthcare provider, helping open and run two new ICU’s in response to the crisis. He is presently working for the Digital Health Executive as the Virtual Care Lead across the multi-site healthcare system."
