At the CHA National Conference the My Future Care website was launched. The web based resource provides information to help ensure people think about their health care needs and discuss them with others. The resource provides a framework that is consistent with the CHACode of Ethical Standardsfor Catholic health and aged care services, but has been designed to be appropriate for people of all faiths and none.
Representatives from Catholic Health Australia (CHA), HESTA and James Cook University joined Apunipima Cape York Health Council in far north Queensland on a visit to the remote communities of Napranum and Aurukun. A health workshop followed which identified approaches by which the Catholic health and aged care sector can help close the health gap for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities in Cape York.
With the support of HESTA, St Vincent’s Health Australia, Mater Health Services, and Cabrini Health were in attendance for the three-day community visits and workshop. Site visits included the soon to be opened Apunipima primary health care centre in Napranum and newly opened centre in Aurukun.
“Apunipima’s objective is to achieve health equity across all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities in Cape York,” said Paula Arnol, Apunipima’s Acting Chief Executive Officer.
