The 2009 LIME Connection III focussed on ‘Advancing Indigenous Health: Workforce Innovations’. Specifically, the Conference addressed leading practice approaches to integrating Indigenous health into medical education and workplace training. In addition, the conference provided an opportunity to discuss and challenge some current practices and discuss emerging tools and techniques to drive continuous improvement in outcomes for Indigenous health.
The LIME Connection III program was held over two days with a pre-conference Indigenous Caucus. We aimed to maximise sharing through concurrent sessions and facilitated workshops and to encourage the participation of clinicians through the provision of an RACGP and ACRRM accredited Active Learning Modules. The Indigenous Caucus brought together Indigenous practitioners, medical educators, students and community members to share their experiences about workforce development, innovations in the field and strategies for the future. There was also an opportunity to take part in our events program that included food by local Indigenous caterers, entertainment and guided site tours.
