conference organising committee from Derbarl Yerrigan Health Service and Royal Perth Hospital.
The HealthInfoNet cafe at the Aboriginal Health 2000 Conference in Perth was made possible by the support of the conference organising committee from Derbarl Yerrigan Health Service and Royal Perth Hospital. The aim of the cafe was to introduce conference attendants to on-line services and technology providing information on Indigenous health. Participants were able to have personalised and informal sessions with the staff at a level that suited individual knowledge and skills of the technology and the Internet. New users were shown the HealthInfoNet site and guided through its major sections. Participants were encouraged to explore the site and its affiliated sites with regard to their specific health interests, and were able to print out material as desired. Many Indigenous health workers visited the cafe to increase their skills and knowledge about new technology.
