CSANZ Indigenous Cardiovascular Health Conference
Join us in the heart of Australia for the unique opportunity to be involved in the improvement of cardiovascular health for Indigenous people in Australia and New Zealand
Conference attendees may claim the appropriate points for hours of attendance at presentations and participation in workshops as allocated by relevant accrediting institutions.
The second CSANZ Indigenous Cardiovascular Health Conference promises to provide an exceptional platform for combining political, social and medical expertise to address the significant life expectancy gap between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples in Australia and New Zealand.
This conference will have as its focus inequities in cardiovascular health care and outcomes among the Indigenous peoples of Australia and New Zealand. Sessions will include invited presentations, workshops and poster presentations. Presentations and discussions will develop the detailed policy recommendations of the inaugural conference and apply these to health care delivery.
Sessions will cover a range of issues relevant to Indigenous Cardiovascular Health, and an outstanding faculty of speakers have agreed to join us. Invited presentations will discuss International Perspectives, Determinants of Cardiovascular Disease, Rheumatic Heart Disease, Improving Access to Cardiovascular Health Care, and Acute and Chronic Coronary Disease in Indigenous populations. Invited presentations will be followed by panel-led discussions welcoming contributions from the audience. We intend these presentations and discussions to form the basis of practical and original policy recommendations.
We are very excited about the potential of this scientific program to improve health care for our Indigenous populations. Please join us for what should be a landmark conference.
