Partyline Number 47 – out now

Thursday, 18 July 2013

The July edition of Partyline carries a six-page feature on hearing services in rural areas, including options for children.

Also focusing on children’s health, is a piece on the new dental health scheme, Grow Up Smiling. Several contributions recount personal experiences in remote communities in the Pacific region. Other articles look at eHealth and telehealth, Aboriginal health, disability services, workplace safety for professionals in rural areas, opportunities for distance education and several perspectives on allied health.

There is a report on a NSW healthy ageing study by the Sax Institute, news on men’s health through theatre from Alan Hopgood and on women’s health from the Jean Hailes Foundation, and a forward look to Budget 2014. This edition also features prize-winning photos and poetry from the Friends competition at the 12th Conference.
