Congress of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Nurses and Midwives 16th national conference and annual general meeting



The theme of the conference is Embrace the difference within our people. The conference brings together experienced nurses and midwives, clinicians, educators, policy makers and administrators from across the nation. The aim of the conference is to share information and work toward an integrated approach to improving health care and health outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. It also provides an opportunity to showcase the very real difference being made in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health by our members.

Conference delegates include nurses and midwives from all health sectors, student nurses and midwives, and recently graduated nurses and midwives. There will also be guests from a range of allied health professionals attending, along with representatives from state and Commonwealth government, higher education and the VET sector and leaders in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island health.

Speakers will include:

HealthInfoNet Cafe

Research Officer Avinna Trzesinski and Research Team Leader, Jane Burns, ran a HealthInfoNet café exhibit at the conference along with 12 other organisations. 

Most visitors knew about the HealthInfoNet and often used it for work or study, but for some delegates it was the first time being shown the resource.

The main focus of the day for other delegates was the Women’s health portal specifically designed for the health workforce, and infants and young children section. 

Many delegates stopped by for a yarn, including Professor Ted Wilkes from WA (pictured below), and picked up a hard copy version of the Overview of Australian Indigenous health status and promotional items along the way.
