We have ongoing collaboration with the Heart Foundation WA, the Australian Cardiovascular Health and Rehabilitation Association WA (ACRA-WA) and from 2020 Rural Health West have partnered with us. Since August 2018, the collaborative partnership have provided 19 sessions, with attendance from 107 sites. Each session is facilitated by an expert in their field, with previous topics ranging from Engaging Aboriginal People in Cardiovascular Care to Dietary information on Heart Health.
Although our sessions are directed mainly clinicians working in WACHS, we welcome metropolitan clinicians working in this area to join us.
