During a visit to Darwin, HealthInfoNet staff conducted HealthInfoNet workshops and participated in the 8th annual Chronic Diseases Network Conference - The Turning Tide: Action and Improvements in Chronic Disease, 23-24 September, 2004. Two half day workshops were conducted prior to the conference at the Danila Dilba Education and Training Centre, to provide Internet training to Indigenous health workers. A HealthInfoNet cafe was conducted at the conference and gave delegates an opportunity to learn about web-based health information and other HealthInfoNet services. HealthInfoNet staff also participated in a session which explored the use of communication technologies to support Indigenous yarning and the sharing of health information.
Also during the visit to Darwin, meetings were arranged with Aboriginal Medical Services Alliance NT (AMSANT), Office for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health (OATSIH), NT Menzies School of Health Research, Cooperative Research Centre for Aboriginal Health (CRC) and Batchelor Institute of Indigenous Tertiary Education to promote and discuss HealthInfoNet services.
