Registrations for first national conference on Health Justice Partnerships

July 24, 2017

Registrations are now open for the first national conference on improving health and justice through partnership.

This conference is aimed at:

  • workers in a health justice partnership or are thinking about setting one up;
  • parties interested in research on health, legal needs, integrating human services or building workforce capability; and
  • services which develop policies or deliver funding to fill the gaps in health and human services through which vulnerable communities continually fall.

30-31 October, 2017
Storey Hall, RMIT University, Melbourne.

Key topics of this conference include:

  • Australia’s health system and social models of health in hospital and community health services;
  • The impact of legal problems on health and wellbeing;
  • Connecting research to practice and clinical training;
  • Supporting community voices in our health, legal and human services;
  • Different approaches to evaluation; and
  • The critical role of policy advocacy in improving the lives of vulnerable communities.

The conference will also hear about comparable models overseas, with a keynote from Professor Sylvia Caley of the HeLP health justice partnership in Georgia, Atlanta (USA).
