I would like to see more on Ausmed about indigenous health care. I am studying indigenous health at the moment, and I was shocked to see how little information was available when I conducted a search.

Interesting. Would have been better for presenter to be facing audience not turned away - a little distracting.

In our Nursing degree we are taught about Aboriginal Health but it is always interesting to know how specifically we can address the issues they face. I enjoyed this conference.
