Community of Practice meeting - Remote communities: Keeping our communities healthy
There is a great deal of focus on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health with the recognition of widespread health issues culminating in shorter lifespans for Australia’s First Peoples, along with the challenges in Closing the Gap. Improving health outcomes will only be achieved through constructive partnerships and shared ownership between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people communities, governments at all levels, and providers of health infrastructure and services.
In this session, we will discuss how we can support our First Nations People in attaining an equitable standard (compared with the broader Australian population) of physical, mental, emotional, cultural, spiritual and social wellbeing, including community capacity and governance. We will explore how relationships, as well as coordinated and integrated service delivery, are key to keeping our communities healthy.
Date: Tuesday 13 July 2021
Time: 1:30pm to 3:00pm
