Healthy ears - sound futures national symposium

 

Overview

The conference is expected to attract a similar number of ear health professionals to the 2010 National Symposium. It will be a time to share the positive outcomes from the evaluation of the project, and hear of the health professional relationships established throughout this journey. One aim of the project is for a sustainable ear health workforce at the primary health care level to contribute to reducing the high prevalence of ear health disease. Building on these health professional relationships to formalise regional networks will be an important step towards achieving this and enabling an integrated best practice ear health model.

HealthInfoNet Cafe

The NACCHO Healthy Ears - Sound Futures National Symposium shared the achievements and outcomes of the Ear and hearing health training project for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Workers from the past three years.

The HealthInfoNet was one of the seven exhibitors at the conference and Research Officer, Avinna Trzesinski, was able to provide information to approximately 100 delegates about the EarInfoNet resource and Indigenous ear health workers' portal, as well as introduce the new Hearing each other: working together for healthy ears mobile phone app and Make your own poster tool. The feedback about the new resources was positive.

Additionally, many delegates collected hard copies of the recently released Review of ear health and hearing among Indigenous Australians and the Ear disease: a guide for the diagnosis and management of otitis media in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children poster.
