Outcomes Practice Evidence Network

OPEN Symposium 2020

26 - 30 October

The theme of the 2020 Symposium was Working to achieve better outcomes for children and families in a rapidly changing environment.

Our 2020 sub-themes were:

  • Adapting to technologies/remote delivery
  • Building the evidence base in a rapidly changing environment
  • Early intervention
  • Successful collaborations

The 2020 OPEN Symposium was held as a week-long celebration of our achievements in creating and using evidence during this challenging time.

Recognising Our Carers Knowledge & Skills


Resi Rocks is an annual opportunity to bring together residential care workers from across the state as a professional group to promote and cultivate a culture of learning and innovation, sharing knowledge, ideas and practice excellence.

The 2019 Resi Rocks was held in June at the MCG - and it was a fantastic day. Check back in early 2020 to find out about our next event for the residential care workforce.
