HealthInfoNet Cafe

This conference was organised by The Northern Territory Chronic Disease Network. The theme was Self-management - a partnership approach. The conference aimed to explore clients and health care providers working in partnership to support the client to self-manage their chronic conditions. It was relevant to general practitioners, researchers, nurses, Aboriginal health workers, allied health practitioners, administrators, and policy makers involved in the care of clients with chronic conditions. The presentations covered all aspects of health from; cardiovascular, diabetes, kidney health, maternal and child health, social and emotional wellbeing, palliative care, rural and remote, Aboriginal health, nutrition, and healthy lifestyles under the themes of consumer perspectives, self-management of social and emotional wellbeing for specific chronic conditions, and policy and practice.

The Australian Indigenous HealthInfoNet held an internet cafe. The main focus was to further promote the new website; The Australian Indigenous ClinicalInfoNet. The cafe aimed to raise awareness of how the ClinicalInfoNet could support delegates in their capacity as primary health workers. Delegates who were using the new ClinicalInfoNet website stated how user friendly it was and the efficiency of locating many resources in one place.

The cafe also gave Christine Potter an opportunity to introduce delegates to the HealthInfoNet. Many delegates were already aware of the HealthInfoNet and provided positive feedback on what it offered them in their work.
