The Australian Health Promotion Association® is supporting three workshops in Perth on Tuesday 12th May 2020. The workshops focus on three important topics: climate and health, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health program evaluation, and health, wellbeing and learning in schools in collaboration with the WA Health Promoting Schools Association.
The workshops are being held on the day before the Public Health Association of Australia’s 2020 Preventive Health Conference with the theme CAN DO PREVENTION: effective action in a volatile world (see https://www.phaa.net.au/events/event/preventive-health-conference-2020). AHPA is assisting PHAA in the conference planning. Attendance at the PHAA Conference is encouraged for all AHPA members.

It is clear that climate change is already affecting the health and well-being of communities around Australia. These impacts will continue to unfold and our ability to protect and promote health will depend on our actions over the coming decade. This workshop will review the connections between climate and health and highlight how Health Impact Assessment (HIA) can be used to inform Vulnerability and Adaptation Assessments. It will provide hands-on examples of how the process is undertaken and provide participants with the opportunity to apply the approach to their own work. An overview of the ‘Operational framework for building climate resilient health systems’ will also be included.
Cost: AHPA and PHAA members - $155 Non-members - $190
This workshop is for those working in school health (e.g. health professionals and teachers) who are interested in innovative ways of integrating school health and education. The workshop will provide insight into the challenges and facilitators in developing healthy whole school environments, aiming to equip students with life-long healthy habits that have a positive influence on learning.
