    I am the Aboriginal Senior Health Promotion Officer in King Edward Memorial Hospital for Women which is located in Subiaco, Western Australia.


    I have been in this position since 2012 and would like to know if there are any other Aboriginal health promotion officers across the country that are also based in a hospital.


    would be great to connect with you.

    Hi WAIHPN mob members,

    The Commissioner for Children and Young People is holding a consultation with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and young people from across WA.

    Expressions of Interest are open for community agencies to run consultations with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and young people throughout WA. 

    Grants of up to $6,000 will be provided to successful organisations to support the consultations with children and young people.

    The Expression of Interest form is available on the Commissioner’s website and must be submitted by Friday 29 August 2014.

    Dear WAIHPN yarning place members,

    As most of you are probably aware by now, after a major site redevelopment in 2009, a substantial duplication between the WA state and WAIHPN sections of the website resulted.

    To improve the functionality of the WAIHPN, these two sections have now been merged. This now means that materials previously found on the WAIHPN section of the site can now all be sourced from the WA state section
    (http://www.healthinfonet.ecu.edu.au/states-territories-home/wa). New information and materials relevant to Indigenous health promotion in WA are added to this web resource progressively with this section currently containing: reviews; health service information; health promotion resources, practice resources; programs and projects; published resources such as journal articles, reports, conference presentations, policies and strategies; and information about and links to relevant organisations and agencies. There is also a section dedicated to workforce issues including: upcoming courses and training, conferences, workshops and events; funding sources; and job opportunities as well as information about the WAIHPN yarning place.

    We hope that you find this section of use and welcome any feedback you may have about the change.

    Warm regards,
    Sasha Stumpers
    WAIHPN yarning place coordinator
