Regional doctors gather for Indigenous health forum

Date posted: 8 July 2014

Rural Health West says it is vital remote doctors from across regional Western Australian have the opportunity to learn about best practice to 'close the gap'.

A total of 150 doctors gathered in Perth last weekend to attend the two day Aboriginal Health Conference.

The program included practical workshops, clinical updates and briefings on programs that exist to close the life expectancy gap between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians. Childhood obesity, kidney disease and hearing programs were just some of the health topics discussed.

Belinda Bailey, Chief executive officer of Rural Health West, says for some doctors, it is one of the few opportunities they have to network and hear about cutting-edge technology and medical developments.
