The 13th National CATSIN conference and annual general meeting was held in Brisbane from 21-23 September. It was attended by around 80 delegates.

The conference theme was "Are we there yet?" and addressed professional nursing issues in the context of Indigenous health. The keynote speaker was Joan Winch, founder of Marr Mooditj Foundation in Western Australia. There were also several presentations addressing workforce issues; the National training plan, remote area nursing, and nurse education.

Kathy Ride ran a HealthInfoNet cafe for two days, which generated considerable interest.
