The recent InGeNA strategic planning day was a great success with a range of initiatives discussed and planned for 2022. Held in late February the key focus areas discussed for 2022/23 included:

  • building a national network of members, partners, and collaborators
  • harnessing the collective skills and expertise of industry
  • demonstrating advocacy and influence in the sector
  • and selecting projects for 2022.

Substantial progress made to narrow down a shortlist of activities that would have the greatest impact on the program of work for 2022. A Miro board was used to capture the insights and interactions of those who attended in person and online.

A review of the 2021 projects highlighted the achievements of the inaugural year including the InGeNA Workforce Precision Medicine Competency Framework project to be formally released at the end of March.

Guests for the strategy planning day included Elizabeth Stares, Director of Corporate Reporting and Risk Management at MTP Connect who discussed the various catalyst bodies they have funded and noted that she considers InGeNA to be one of the more successful collaborations.

Attendees also heard from the Australasian Institute of Digital Health (AIDH) Director of Leadership and Advocacy Khaled Chakli, who led a discussion on advocacy opportunities for 2022 and shared knowledge about using the 2021 InGeNA project outputs to develop position papers and fact sheets to succinctly share the InGeNA messages with governments and other key stakeholders.
