Angela Sheedy's insight:
Considering lung disease- cancer or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease are responsible for one of the largest burden of disease for Australia, the Lung Foundation have prepared a series of education resources for health workers. These have been accredited by Professional Associations and do contribute to CPD hours- however most of them also require payment for participation.   If this is an area you are particularly interested in then they are worth it- and you can tax deduct these fees.

Primary health care, Interviews with Professionals

Empty description
Angela Sheedy's insight:
The following resource has been developed for CDU health students and consists of a series of interviews with health professionals from Non-government organisations (NGO) in the primary health care industry. NGO’s are great contributors to community health and often we have no idea exactly what they do or how we can use their services either for ourselves or clients. The interviews presented here are with a selection of multidisciplinary health professionals from The Cancer Council, The Heart Foundation, Family Planning Welfare Association, TEAMhealth and NT Healthy Living. Each person was asked a series of questions around the following six focus areas: health care systems, primary health care provision, health student’s preparation, chronic disease management, health education (for clients) and health promotion. Take the time to review these and for the purpose of this topic have a listen to how they have responded to questions around areas such as the type of clients they work with, their team members and health promotion. You may also like to listen to what advice they have for health students interested in working in their area of practice. There is an email address attached to the site (and examples of how to reference the site) in the credits- feedback is always welcome.

Okay, we all know how arduous (but very necessary) referencing can be. This web site provides a free referencing tool which I have tired out and is actually very good- it is easy and intuitive to use. Make sure you double check it however as i found it did not put the indents in correctly for APA style, otherwise it was fairly accurate.
