SARRAH National Conference
for Rural and Remote Allied Health Professionals
PORT LINCOLN HOTEL, PORT LINCOLN
“It takes a village to raise a child” is a traditional African proverb and the theme for the 2016 SARRAH National Conference for Rural and Remote Allied Health Professionals.
What if our “child” is rural and remote health outcomes and thriving communities?
In rural and remote life and work, our “village” has never been more important than it is today. We live in a rapidly evolving environment and we are faced with a myriad of both challenges and opportunities each day. Navigating these changes can be daunting – collaboration, innovation, partnerships and supports are necessary to prepare our communities for a vibrant, sustainable future.
A village approach implies that there is shared responsibility and that people work together and contribute in ways that are consistent with their strengths, skills and abilities.
It takes a village to have necessary tough conversations, to disagree and to problem solve in ways that are inclusive.
At the 2016 SARRAH National Conference, delegates will have the opportunity to explore how this village approach can be applied to rural and remote health outcomes.
SARRAH 2016 Organising Committee
The SARRAH 2016 Organising Committee acknowledges and respects the Aboriginal sovereign owners as the traditional custodians of the ancestral land we live, work and travel upon. We respect their spiritual relationship with Country and the deep feelings of attachment to the land. We acknowledge the continuing importance of their cultural and heritage beliefs today. We pay our respect to the Elders past and present. We would like to also acknowledge those who no longer know where home is due to the assimilation policies of the past.
