Our Yarning places are electronic networks that enable people with an interest in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health to share information, knowledge and experience - even when they live in different states, territories and regions, come from different sectors (such as health, education and justice), and work for different organisations.
When you join a Yarning place - membership is free - you will have access to electronic services that assist you to network, yarn and share information and experiences online. These services include:
Once you have joined, a confirmation message explaining more about the Yarning places will be sent to your e-mail address. To access the Yarning places you will need to log in and enter your email address and password (just a reminder - your password is the one you entered on the join form).
The HealthInfoNet currently offers 17 different Yarning places across various health topics. These Yarning places have been developed with funding and collaboration from organisations with expertise in each health topic.
We are currently exploring funding options to develop Yarning places for other Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health priorities. If you are aware of any possible sources of funding, please contact us.
As a courtesy to others - and to protect yourself – the HealthInfoNet has established a set of guidelines to consider when using the Yarning places, which can be accessed here.
