HealthInfoNet Cafe

The Western Australian health conference aimed to provide health professionals from across Western Australia (WA) with a valuable networking opportunity and showcase innovations being delivered across a range of health services. The sessions provided information on a wide variety of topics including Indigenous health, child health, workforce training, tele-health and health promotion. The conference was relevant to many health professionals in WA, including Aboriginal Health Workers, clinicians, nurses, policy makers and people working in health information.

The HealthInfoNet hosted a café for both days of the conference, and Andrea MacRae, Miranda Poynton and Trish O'Hara were able to provide information to approximately 250 delegates about a variety of health topics available on the HealthInfoNet web resource. The 2013 update of the Overview of the health of Indigenous people in Western Australia was officially launched at the conference and HealthInfoNet staff provided free copies of this new publication to over 200 interested delegates. They also handed out free copies of the Review of ear health and hearing among Indigenous Australians, the Review of acute rheumatic fever and rheumatic heart disease among Indigenous Australians, the Review of physical activity among Indigenous people, the Review of cardiovascular health among Indigenous Australians, and the Review of kidney disease among Indigenous people.
