HealthInfoNet Cafe

This year's Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP) conference in Darwin was extremely well attended, attracting around 1,000 delegates. The conference provided GPs with excellent opportunities to network, learn, exchange knowledge and engage in activities which generate College CPD points. 

As in previous years, Indigenous health was an important focus of the conference.

Kathy Ride and Miranda Poynton from the Australian Indigenous HealthInfoNet ran an information cafe in the exhibition hall during the conference. The cafe provided delegates with information about the new ClinicalInfoNet website, which provides GPs, nurses and Aboriginal Health Workers with easy access to Indigenous chronic disease resources. The feedback about the ClinicalInfoNet was positive, with many delegates commenting on the user-friendliness of the website and the usefulness of locating resources in one place.
