Event description

Description


Held each year since 2006, the 2 day Kimberley Chronic Disease Workshop alternates between Derby, Broome, and Kununurra. This workshop is free to attend.

The agenda is developed with a focus on topics relevant to the Kimberley and health of priority populations, in particular of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. Guest speakers are sourced from local health providers, visiting specialists and National lead organisations.

This workshop is strongly interdisciplinary and multisectoral, and open to health professionals of all disciplines, including students, researchers and academics.

The program is focused on issues relevant to the Kimberley, highlighting effective health delivery models in remote areas.

The workshops are designed to support and encourage attendees from different service organisations to attend by providing free and flexible attendance options. Providing a flexible attendance option means that health professionals can choose to attend presentations most relevant to them.
