The Australian Indigenous HealthInfoNet has just launched the Indigenous eye health workers' web resource. This new resource aims to provide the Indigenous eye health workforce and related workers with easy-to-access, quality information about the eye 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 EyeInfoNet 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 eye 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 eye health workers' web resource, also known as a 'portal', was developed by the Australian Indigenous HealthInfoNet, with grateful acknowledgement to the support of the Brien Holden Vision Institute. Its development was guided by a national Reference Group and the Indigenous EyeInfoNetwork.
This web resource will be supported by the EyeInfoNetwork yarning place to encourage information sharing and collaboration among health professionals and others involved in eye health among Indigenous peoples. If you are interested in the eye health of Indigenous peoples we encourage you to join the EyeInfoNetwork yarning place at www.yarning.org.au
