ATSI ASOHNS 2015

4th Aboriginal and Torrest Strait Islander Ear Health Meting held 6 March 2015 in Sydney as a satellite meeting to the ASOHNS 2014 Annual Scientific Meeting

          

 

The ATSI ASOHNS 2015 meeting focused on the innovations and excellence inear delivery currently happening throughout Australia in the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.

 

This meeting was the fourth such meeting held as a satellite meeting to the ASOHNS Annual Scientific Meetings.

 

While the previous meetings addressed the depravity and dichotomy of the health care services provided for ear disease in ATSI, the objective for 2015 was to ensure that excellence in ear disease prevention was promoted among these communities.

 

Ultimately, we are working towards developing a well-funded, nationally coordinated approach that engages all stakeholders working in partnership with ATSI communities to develop and deliver appropriate, effective, multi-disciplinary programs and services.

 

This meeting is designed to bring together all those involved in managing ear health in our ATSI communities, including:

 

ENT surgeons   *  ENT nurses  *  ATSI health workers  *  rural / regional surgeons  *  GPs  *  audiologists  *  speech pathologists  *  occupational therapists  *  teachers  *  researchers  *  policy bureaucrats  *  government (both state and federal) representatives  *  otitis media interest

This was the third such workshop convened as a satellite meeting to an ASOHNS Annual Scientific Meeting and it will continue to be held annually, rotated in major capital cities in Australia.

 

The primary aim is to develop a national, coordinated plan of action to tackle the educational and social implications of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Ear Disease pandemic.

 

Through the information presented and participation by stakeholders attending the meeting, our goals are to:

 

  • increase awareness of the serious long-reaching societal effects of this crucial health issue

Indigenous Ear Health - Making a Difference

held 15 March 2013 in Perth as a satellite meeting to the ASOHNS 2013 Annual Scienfiic Meeting



The workshop was designed to bring together ENT surgeons, GPs, nurses, Aboriginal health workers, audiologists, teachers and many other workers involved in managing ear health.

Indigenous Ear Health Workshop – Making a Difference’ includes national experts in their field who address management issues and developments in treating chronic ear disease in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander (ATSI) children.

The main topics relate to translational and clinical research in the field – making a difference to the lives of these children.

The workshop explores associated public health, paediatric, immunological and education issues associated with chronic ear disease.

At its conclusion, participants should be cognisant of current applied research and treatment strategies for ATSI people with chronic ear disease.

2012

Aboriginal Ear Disease - A multi-disciplinary study day

held 31 March 2012 in Adelaide as a satellite meeting to the ASOHNS 2012 Annual Scientific Meeting

 

  


The management of Aboriginal ear disease remains a major health problem in Australia. It involves a multi-disciplinary approach and significant infrastructure.


The delivery of services varies widely across States and Territories and in many areas, it is fair to say that there has been little or no progress over recent years.


This study day is designed to bring together ENT surgeons, GPs, nurses, Aboriginal health workers, audiologists, teachers and many other workers involved in the
management of ear health.



Outline
A review of current and recommended care pathways for the management of chronic otitis media in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.


Learning outcomes

  • To learn about the current epidemiology of Aboriginal ear disease in Australia.
  • To learn about how services are currently provided in each of the States and Territories of Australia.
  • To establish research priorities for future work.
  • To critically analyse current models of care and propose new treatment algorithms
