Strategic Directions

Following the successful  Living Well in a Complex Life symposium held on 17 September 2014, it was decided that the impetus of the symposium outcomes could be used to regenerate the South Australian Self Management Alliance (SASMA) by delivering a planning and priorities workshop on Thursday 4th December 2014. The revised strategic priority areas align with the previous strategic aims, developments in health and Government direction.
