Health Facility Design and Development Day Two: Thursday, 28 November 2019

Thursday, November 28th, 2019

2:30 PM Networking Afternoon Tea

Community engagement, governance and culture are the three key elements applied to ensure successful developments in rural and remote areas. Sean will discuss this with reference to the new Primary Health Care Centre at Mer Island that caters for a total population of approximately 365 people, with 93% of the population identifying as Torres Strait Islander. Learn how to:

  • Create greater awareness and transparency with the community to build relevant and suitable infrastructure
  • Engage the health consumer and clinician earlier in the process to influence the design 
  • Tackle unique challenges around land and cultural appropriateness and take this into account to ensure suitability of design
