The Australian Indigenous HealthInfoNet would like to extend a warm welcome two new partner organisations, Congress of Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Nurses and midwives (CATSINaM) and The National Centre for Immunisation Research and Surveillance (NCIRS).
CATSINaM was founded in 1997 to formally represent Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander nurses and midwives. CATSINaM is made up of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander nurses and midwives, students of nursing and midwifery and has retired nurses and midwives as associate members. CATSINaM's primary aim is to increase the recruitment and retention of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples into nursing and midwifery.
NCIRS is based at the Children's Hospital at Westmead, NSW, and is responsible for research and surveillance aimed at reducing the incidence of vaccine preventable diseases and improving vaccine uptake in children and adults. NCIRS also provides independent expert advice on all aspects of vaccine preventable diseases and social and other issues related to immunisation. The Centre has a strong role in postgraduate training and supervision.
The HealthInfoNet greatly looks forward to working with our new partners.
