Linking Up for Kids

Event Date: 14 April 2014 to 15 April 2014

Building strong partnerships between health, hospital and education systems to enhance child and youth wellbeing - a vision for the future

The Linking Up for Kids conference is inspired by the recognition that the health and education sectors each do terrific work to support, teach and care for children and youth. What is less evident is how much more effective they could be in working together to keep kids well, and to better meet their needs when they are not.

This unique conference aims to showcase innovations, models, programs and activities that enhance the health and wellbeing of children and youth through forging partnerships between health and education service providers. It asks:

  • What are school communities currently doing, and what more can they do in the future, to promote the health of children and youth?
  • What can health workers do to meet the education needs of long term patients?
  • What can we do together to produce happy, healthy, functional adults? How will we know?

This two-day event, will offer learning and networking opportunities to a wide cross-section of public and private healthcare providers, and school and educational staff from remote, rural, regional and metropolitan areas.

With this vision in mind Children’s Healthcare Australasia (CHA) and the Australian Research Alliance for Children and Youth (ARACY), will be co-hosting these vital discussions and invite you to participate in the conference.

Registrations are now open.
