The Australian College of Nursing (ACN) Community and Primary Health Care Nursing Conference (CPHCNC) was held over two and half days at the Novotel Vines Resort and Country Club in the Swan Valley, Perth. The conference brought together nurses, midwives and other workers from the health sector from across Australia.
The conference theme for 2012 was Shaping and influencing primary health care, aiming to continue advancement in the pursuit of a strong primary health care system and the important role of practice nurses. The presentations, workshops, and poster displays covered several topics, including: applying population health needs; influencing policy and practice; safety and quality in clinical governance; and the role of the consumer.
The HealthInfoNet conducted an internet café on the second day of the conference. The café, run by Avinna Trzesinski, was well attended with delegates taking an interest in the Summary of Indigenous health, the Overview of the health of Indigenous people in Western Australian 2011, reviews on women's health, oral health and substance use, as well as some of the other promotional material on offer.
Feedback provided by the delegates was positive and many had the opportunity to take time to look at specific topics of interest on the laptop provided at the café. The conference also provided the ideal opportunity to promote the Australian Indigenous HealthInfoNet Yarning Places - designed to provide networking opportunities and information for workers interested in the Indigenous health.
