The webinar will run for 90 minutes online via Zoom and is free of charge. It is also CPD accredited and is endorsed by the Australian College of Nursing and the Australian National Association for Aboriginal Health Workers and Practitioners. It will be presented by a clinician and will be reviewed by the AH&MRC and external bodies to make sure it is culturally appropriate.

All the webinars will take place from 10:00am-11:30am on a Wednesday.
