Aboriginal Injuries: Incidence and costs of injury in WA

22 Mar 2018, 9:00am-10:00am

Please join Know Injury for the latest in our series of seminars detailing components of the Department of Health’s report, Incidence and Cost of Injury in Western Australia 2012.

This briefing will provide an expert analysis of the impact of injuries sustained by Aboriginal peoples in WA, including health sector costs, long-term care costs, loss of paid productivity and loss of quality of life. Keynote presentations will be delivered from the perspectives of research, policy and practice, with a focus on how the data can be understood and applied to inform policy and program development, and strategies available to work with Aboriginal peoples and communities. The briefing will also be available via video conference (video conference information will be sent in the confirmation email).

Speakers Dr Delia Hendrie Senior Lecturer, School of Public Health, Avinna Trzesinski, Australian Indigenous HealthinfoNet and final speaker to be announced soon.
