HealthInfoNet Cafe

This conference was organised by the National Rural Health Alliance and held in Cairns, 17-20 May 2009. The conference was intended for anyone who had a personal or professional interest in the health and well-being of people in rural and remote areas. Indigenous health and well-being was once again a major focus of the conference.

Deputy Director Richard Midford and Senior Research Officer Ineke Krom from the Australian Indigenous HealthInfoNet conducted a HealthInfoNet cafe at the conference, showing the attendees how the Australian Indigenous HealthInfoNet can help support people working, studying or interested in Australian Indigenous health. Between four and seven laptops with Internet connection were available for use for the conference attendees. The Internet cafe was set up with support from Beyondblue, the national depression initiative.

On Monday 18 May Richard Midford did a presentation titled: Australian Indigenous HealthInfoNet: bridging the gap between research and practice and policy in Indigenous health.
