Indigenous Conference Services, the convenor of the 2019 National Closing the Gap Indigenous Health & Chronic Diseases Conference has now finalized the conference proceedings with a kaleidoscope of First Nations speakers sharing stories and great opportunities for delegates to participate in events which are devoted to the sharing of Culture, Empowerment, Education & Networking. The conference embraces the philosophy of Indigenous community controlled and mainstream service providers working collaboratively through promoting an informative forum of research, health education and training of staff for the betterment of Indigenous health. With just less than four (4) weeks to go, we have limited seats with 50% discounted rate. Hence, we encourage anyone who wishes to attend to register as soon as possible by writing the promo code EM50% after your name on the registration form.

Similarly, the Spirit of Cairns Dinner Cruises are offering all delegates of the 2019 National Closing the Gap Indigenous Health & Chronic Diseases Conference, an extraordinary networking opportunity to enjoy a fantastic evening of calm water cruising with entertainment, delicious 3 course buffet meal and fabulous views, including sunset over the rainforest-clad mountains. Starting at Marlin Marina, Spirit of Cairns takes you on a journey deep into the interior of Trinity Inlet and its winding tributaries. Keep your eyes peeled, you might even see a crocodile. The cruise passes along Cairns’ waterfront and Esplanade precinct, delivering panoramic views of the twinkling Cairns’ night lights.

Furthermore, this conference offers an optional value-added learning for delegates on the third day where a post conference masterclass entitled, The Gatekeeper Cultures and Spirituality - Interventionist to Suicide will be facilitated by First Nations American clinical psychologist, Dr. Joseph B. Stone, PhD, an Anasaki-Pikuni ceremonialist and traditionalist and member of the OKKAN (Sundance), the Last Star Thunder Medicine Pipe and Beaver Lodge and his partner, Dr. Amber Logan, a traditional Kahungunu Maori Wahine and a New Zealand Health Psychologist and Doctoral Fellow in Public Health at Otago University. In just one day, you can learn strategies how to become an interventionist to suicide and work effectively with your clients who are experiencing inter-generational trauma and their families. Therefore, if you are worrying about how your team, family and community effectively assist and manage clients experiencing intergenerational trauma, this workshop will teach you:

  • The strong benefits of recapturing and revitalizing our languages, cultures and spirituality
  • How to become an interventionist to suicide in your communities
  • Understand and utilise trauma-informed care to heal ourselves, our clients, and our communities.
  • Strategies in managing clients and families affected by inter-generational trauma and break the cycle of suicide in our communities.

Moreover, we’ve also negotiated a special conference rate that can only be availed by registered delegates booking their hotel rooms directly at the Pullman International Hotel in Cairns. For employers, it has been proven time and time again that events such as this empowers and reinvigorates workers with new ideas and enthusiasm, with a greater feeling of support and contacts that may be utilised for the betterment of their own or local community. With all this in mind, we invite you to attend the 2019 National Closing the Gap Indigenous Health & Chronic Diseases Conference, conference networking dinner cruise and post-conference masterclass.
