The Australian Indigenous HealthInfoNet based at Edith Cowan University has been awarded $174,036 by Healthway. This grant enables a series of half-day workshops to be conducted across Western Australia on the use of the HealthInfoNet. The HealthInfoNet is a well-established, comprehensive web resource that makes the latest evidence-based material about Indigenous health readily accessible to key service workers in this field.
The 18 month pilot project will focus on providing front line service workers with information, acquisition and utilisation skills on health issues that are relevant to the Indigenous population, and will be implemented in collaboration with the Aboriginal Health Council of Western Australia (AHCWA), and involve appropriate staff based at local Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Services (ACCHS) as facilitators.
