As well as the strategic advice provided by the HealthInfoNet's Advisory Board, we are assisted in specific areas by a number of reference and/or steering groups. We currently have reference groups assisting in the areas of ear health and hearing, eye health, substance use, and social and emotional wellbeing.
Development of the evidence-base for Indigenous environmental health practitioners is being guided by a similar group.
