Share a project or initiative at the Summit via an e-poster or video

We are eager to create and share a suite of resources that demonstrate examples of partnership projects and initiatives from across Victoria’s health system. The focus of the event is on two priority domains: ‘Effective Communication’ and ‘Working Together’. We want to showcase the work you are doing that shows these in action. There are two ways that you can support us to do this:

  1. Submitting an e-poster (simple four-slide template)
  2. Creating a short video (2-3 minute clip)

The Guidance documentation and slide templates are available here.


  • E-posters and videos need to be prepared in partnership between healthcare organisations and consumers (this includes Victorian-based health services, Aged Care services, and community health services).
  • Projects or initiatives must focus on the domains of Effective Communication and/or Working Together
  • The template and guidance provided must be followed.
  • Completed e-posters and video links need to be submitted to by no later than Friday 5 May 2023.

More information about Effective Communication and Working Together domains

Communication: Consumers require high-quality information that they can readily understand and act upon. Health literacy is an enabler of communication and participation in healthcare. It is also the product of good communication between health professionals and consumers, and of health systems that are responsive to consumer needs. ‘Effective Communication’ is one of key domains within Partnering in healthcare, but naturally interconnects with other key domains including Personalised and holistic, and Equity and inclusion.

Working together: Consumers are seen as respected partners in their healthcare and service improvement and innovation activities. Personalised and holistic care is possible when people work together in strong teams, partnerships and share knowledge. Knowledge transfer is a two-way street. The challenges of the pandemic demanded improved and new ways of working together amongst clinicians, patients and families.
