Thursday, 17 November 2016

The HealthInfoNet Visualising Research project is a collaborative partnership between Edith Cowan University's (ECU) Australia Indigenous HealthInfoNet and the ECU School of Arts and Humanities, Design. The project focus was to develop visual representations of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health information. The project goal is to facilitate knowledge exchange between researchers and the health workforce to improve health outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

Students were given reviews of specific important health topics which are text based and challenged to represent these visually in a way that provides an immediate learning opportunity for a time poor workforce.

HealthInfoNet Director, Professor Neil Drew who, along with Associate Professor Stuart Medley and Dr Hanadi Haddad, initiated the project said 'The students have done an amazing job with guidance from Dr Haddad and Associate Professor Medley. They have creatively reinterpreted the written word to produce a range of resources that health workers can immediately apply in their everyday work quickly and effectively. This has been a wonderful collaboration that provides the students with a real world opportunity to use their emerging skills and it has provided resources that enhance the work of the HealthInfoNet throughout the country. Students have been presented with certificates of appreciation to acknowledge their excellent contribution. We look forward to this collaboration continuing next year'.
