Highlights of the conference, which attracted around 300 delegates to Sydney on 5-6 May to consider ‘Research for a better future', included the keynote addresses by Pat Anderson, chairperson of the Lowitja Institute and Professor Ezra Susser, Professor of Psychiatry and Epidemiology of the Mailman School of Public Heath at Columbia University in New York, USA. Ms Anderson stressed the need for the research evidence to inform policy and practice in Indigenous health, and Professor Susser provided a variety of international examples in his address linking social justice and mental health.
These keynote addresses were complemented by major symposia - effective partnerships between Indigenous communities and researchers for both adults and children, translation of research to policy for mental health, and building the base to support research - and a number of concurrent sessions devoted to key issues in Indigenous health research.
Many delegates took advantage of the opportunity of getting hands-on experience of the HealthInfoNet at a cafe.
