Indigenous Allied Health Australia (IAHA) national forum



The theme of this forum is Valuing diversity in allied health. Indigenous Allied Health Australia (IAHA), the national Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander allied health peak body, is holding a series of professional development opportunities for allied health graduates and students and the wider allied health workforce.

The 2014 IAHA national forum includes:

IAHA HealthFusion team challenge
An extra-curricular, immersive and fun interprofessional learning experience that uses competition to motivate students studying in allied health to work together for improved patient outcomes. It will be a 2 day event that will be held specifically for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health students.

Professional development workshops
In order to provide opportunities for allied health professionals to engage in ongoing professional development, IAHA will hold a 2 day Forum involving 8 interactive and thought-provoking workshops to assist the current and emerging allied health workforce in their professional journeys.

IAHA 2014 national Indigenous Allied Health awards and gala dinner
Building on the success of the 2013 national Indigenous Allied Health awards, IAHA will again recognise the contribution of IAHA members to improving the health and wellbeing of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples by holding a gala dinner and awards. If you know or work with an outstanding allied health student or graduate, nominate them for a national award to recognise their contributions and successes.

IAHA 2014 annual general meeting
For IAHA members, the annual general meeting and members forum will be held on the final day (27 November). Members are encouraged to be involved in decision making and the governance of IAHA.
