Indigenous Allied Health Australia (IAHA), a national not for profit, member-based Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander allied health organisation, will hold its 2017 IAHA National Conference at the Rendezvous Scarborough Perth in Western Australia, 27-29 November 2017.
The conference theme is Care, Cultures and Connection, which reflects three key factors that influence the health and wellbeing of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. Within an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander and allied health context, building culturally responsive connections and relationships and valuing cultures, cultural knowledges and perspectives will contribute to the delivery of culturally safe and responsive care.
The conference values and is built on the strengths of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities and allied health workforce and fosters collaboration and connection. There is a place and a space for you at our conference, no matter what your role and where you work.
