The National Indigenous immunisation research workshop identified priorities in Indigenous immunisation, and facilitated engagement and networking among researchers, policy makers, immunisation providers, the community and other relevant stakeholders.
The workshop communicated and discussed a broad range of information including vaccine coverage, service delivery strategies, maternal and neonatal immunisation, workforce issues, immunisation to support ear health, and updated information on each of the common vaccine preventable diseases in the Indigenous Australian population.
The HealthInfoNet was invited to set up a café, and Anomie and Renee Lynch were able to provide information to approximately 100 delegates about the Immunisation and EarInfoNet areas of the web resource. They 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, and the Overview of the health of Indigenous people in Western Australia.
Anomie was also a speaker at the workshop, and explained the translational research work of the HealthInfoNet, highlighting areas of the web resource that are useful to researchers. The presentation was received well by delegates, and it was encouraging to see the number of researchers who utilise the HealthInfoNet web resource.HealthInfoNet cafes
