The Australian Indigenous HealthInfoNet has just launched the Indigenous ear health workers' web resource. This new resource aims to provide the Indigenous ear health workforce and related workers with easy-to-access, quality information about the ear health of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
Content includes key facts, publications, health promotion resources, practice resources and programs and projects. Workforce information includes courses and training, job opportunities, conferences, workshops and events.
The new resource is different to the regular EarInfoNet in the kind of information it contains and how this information can be accessed. We know health workers are busy people, so we've tried to limit the amount of material to include only items that would be relevant for an ear health worker. The new resource is also easier to navigate, so busy health workers can access the information they need as quickly as possible.
The Indigenous ear health workers' web resource, also known as a 'portal', was developed by the Australian Indigenous HealthInfoNet in partnership with Menzies School of Health Research. Its development was guided by a national Reference Group and the Indigenous EarInfoNetwork.
This web resource will be supported by the EarInfoNetwork yarning place to encourage information sharing and collaboration among health professionals and others involved in ear health among Indigenous peoples. If you are interested in the ear health of Indigenous peoples we encourage you to join the EarInfoNetwork yarning place at www.yarning.org.au
We're always keen to receive feedback from users, so if you have any comments, suggestions or ideas for improvements we'd love to hear from you! You can contact us via the details below.
