The heart of the centre - educational symposium on chronic diseases in Indigenous communities

 

Overview

The symposium is run by Baker IDI Heart and Diabetes Institute. This educational symposium is designed for health professionals who are working with the impact of chronic diseases in Indigenous communities, in particular cardiovascular disease and its complications.

It will explore risk factors such as social, cultural and psychological issues as well as care planning and barriers impacting the clinical management of people with heart disease and diabetes, which represent the most significant health burden in Indigenous communities.

Local and national experts will discuss the latest evidence and relevance to the NT experience. The symposium is aimed at all health professionals, including general practitioners, clinical specialists, hospital staff, remote health and allied health staff. Aboriginal Health Practitioners and Aboriginal Health Workers are encouraged to attend this educational event.

Registration is free but essential.
