The purpose of this conference was to provide a forum for the sharing of ideas and knowledge about enhancing community safety and preventing injury in rural and remote Western Australia. Australian Indigenous HealthInfoNet (AIH) contributed to these aims by running an Internet cafe for conference delegates to demonstrate how they could use the AIH web resource to access knowledge on injury prevention in Indigenous communities.
