Health promotion short course

 

Overview

This short course is run by the Aboriginal Maternity Services Support Unit (AMSSU) and Curtin University of Technology. The AMSSU is committed to building capacity in supporting service providers in the further development of strategies to address modifiable outcomes in pregnancy, childbirth and the early postnatal period for Aboriginal women, newborns and their families to address health concerns in a culturally appropriate way. Example of these areas include smoking, prevention of Sudden Unexpected Death Infancy (SUDI), infection, breast feeding and a range of other health factors.

Those working as maternal and child health staff (Aboriginal health workers, midwives, nurses and Aboriginal health promotion officers) currently working in teams and those funded under Closing the Gap in Early Childhood (element two) and maternal and child health programs/service delivery with Aboriginal families.

Registration date closes Thursday 11 April 2013.
