2023 Workplace Relations Webinar Series

In this five-webinar series, we bring together industry experts to address key and emerging issues facing doctors in private practice. 

All webinars will include a Q&A session where you can seek specific advice from panellists and guest speakers.

Webinar #1: Cybersecurity for Private Practice

Thursday 19 January 2023 | Recording available

AMA Queensland's Workplace Relations Team travelled all over Queensland in 2022 for our Private Practice Seminar Series. The series covered risky business topics for GPs and specialists, and discussions about local issues you are facing. One of these growing issues and concerns was cybersecurity risk.

Data breaches caused by cyber criminals are on the rise. Doctors need to protect their patients and their medical records so this webinar is about how cyber criminals (hackers) can get into your practice and practical tips to help keep them out.

Zach will discuss Veteran and Veteran Partner Employment Pathways for Private Practice, including:

How your specific role requirements are matched to with service-trained candidates with the skillset your require.
Ways you can work with RSL Queensland to reliably source quality candidates over the long term.
