The AIDA Conference 2019 will be held in Darwin 2-4 October, so save these dates in your calendar.
Conference theme: Disruptive Innovations in Health Care
Indigenous communities hold profound knowledges of health and wellbeing that are informed over generations. These holistic understandings are increasingly sought after to improve equitable healthcare for all Australians. Disruptive transformations to achieve better health for all require innovations that build on the capabilities of individuals, institutions, healthcare settings and the communities in which they serve. The AIDA Conference 2019 is a forum to share and build on knowledges that increasingly disrupt existing practice and policy to raise the standards of health care. People with a passion for health care equity are invited to share their knowledges and expertise about how they have participated in or enabled a ‘disruptive innovation’ to achieve culturally safe and responsive practice or policy for Indigenous communities.
