Summary of discussions
Common Issues:

1. Professional autonomy:

  • Having autonomous decision in caring our clients;
  • Board / Council should be chaired by our own professionals;
  • Regulations & Registration: ensure professional standard and quality;
  • Intensify the public recognition of our professionals;
  • Enhance our role in primary health care.

2. Health policy:

    • Existing policy is imbalance: focused on treatment, rather than on holistic health.
    • Lack of public participation and opportunity for informed choices.

3. Role / Function of HA:

  • As the largest health care service provider, does it position rightly in the provision of service and allocation of health care expenditure?

4. Health care financing:

  • Cost-effectiveness: possible model for sustaining service provision.

Discipline-related burning issues:

  • Shortage of human resources in mental health and midwifery.
  • Central formulary: does the public have informed choices?
  • Continuing professional education.
  • Referral system.
  • Sick leave certification.
