This event will discuss some of the key findings in the ANZ-Melbourne Institute Health Sector Report 2021, The evolution of the medical workforce, and will provide an opportunity to discuss these findings with prominent researchers and experts in the field. What are the trends in the medical workforce after 20 years of expansion, and what can they tell us about providing the best healthcare possible?
Following the webinar, all attendees will be the first to receive a digital copy of the new report.
In recent years there has been an explosion of concern around terms like ‘fake news’, ‘misinformation’, and ‘disinformation’. And online social networks such as Twitter and Facebook are often implicated (with good reason) in their spread.
But what do each of these terms mean, how do they differ, and what role do the online social networks really play?
In this public lecture, Associate Professor Lewis Mitchell will explore mis/disinformation online, and in particular, some of the underlying mathematics governing how all kinds of information spread over social networks.
The lecture will be 45 minute presentation followed by Q & A.
This lecture is part of the ARC Centre of Excellence for Mathematical and Statistical Frontiers (ACEMS) Virtual Public Lecture Series.
