Tepper's leadership advice: who are the three people you need to talk to in order to create the changes you want to see? #FHL2012 Sun Sep 02 06:01:51 +0000 2012
A ball of yarn connects us and comes together to form a scarf that will protect us when times get tough #FHL2012 Sun Sep 02 05:59:19 +0000 2012
Do we have a "burning platform" on rural health? How can we create one if we don't? #FHL2012 Sun Sep 02 05:58:12 +0000 2012
Hard to keep up with CME when you're a rural doc - few opportunities to leave your base. Can tech help solve this? #FHL2012 Sun Sep 02 05:53:35 +0000 2012
Leadership is the new black #FHL2012 Sun Sep 02 05:53:00 +0000 2012

In rural healthcare, the numbers are so small that the situation is always fragile #FHL2012 Sun Sep 02 05:50:51 +0000 2012
In inner city areas in Canada, Indigenous peoples also face difficult life circumstances. #FHL2012 Sun Sep 02 05:47:12 +0000 2012
Tepper faced anti-Semitic comments in rural Canada. He was often the first Jewish person communities had met #FHL2012 Sun Sep 02 05:44:20 +0000 2012
Just like we have the RFDS, there's a flying doctors service in Canada http://t.co/Dfg1gARf #FHL2012 Sun Sep 02 05:43:23 +0000 2012

Refugees need education, support, a feeling of control, belief in the system they're entering #FHL2012 Sun Sep 02 05:27:54 +0000 2012
It takes a village to raise a child and a village to support us lifelong #FHL2012 #teamwork Sun Sep 02 05:25:49 +0000 2012

Have you heard of Dreamtracks? Inspirational! http://t.co/l9CNEUyq #FHL2012 Sun Sep 02 02:39:39 +0000 2012
Are we encouraging people to only seek health services when they're "sick"? Can we create welcoming healthCARE environments? #FHL2012 Sun Sep 02 02:34:24 +0000 2012
As health professionals, we must make sure individuals understand why and how to follow advice on caring for themselves #FHL2012 Sun Sep 02 02:31:07 +0000 2012
Many new parents in the next few years may never have known a child. We need to appreciate that parent education is really important for all Sun Sep 02 02:26:42 +0000 2012
O'Halloran: mums in the Katherine want the best for their kids but they don't always know how. Many mums don't! #FHL2012 Sun Sep 02 02:26:00 +0000 2012
Suggestion from the audience of Tom Calma inspiring students at conferences. How about student Ed being inspiring in itself? #FHL2012 Sun Sep 02 02:24:38 +0000 2012
Glad other students here are recognizing the Indigenous health story can be positive #FHL2012 Sun Sep 02 02:23:52 +0000 2012
@NoGreatMischief I want it! I hope my peers do too. Students at #Usyd are advocating but faculty not listening/changing. Sun Sep 02 01:51:02 +0000 2012
Kenny: how can alternative teaching methods be used to make education life-long? Great Qu!! #FHL2012 Sun Sep 02 01:48:27 +0000 2012
Kenny: can we improve the quality of teaching? Make it long-term learning. #FHL2012 Sun Sep 02 01:47:50 +0000 2012
Co-ordinating big, middle and little pictures. It'd be great if our research institutes, govts, corporations talked to each other! #FHL2012 Sun Sep 02 01:46:53 +0000 2012
In answer to the Qu: Multi-D education is recommended in the medical curriculum. It just doesn't happen http://t.co/4Z5s4vT0 #FHL2012 Sun Sep 02 01:38:12 +0000 2012
In question to the question - is health Ed really overcrowded, or is it just inefficient? I'd say the latter. #FHL2012 Sun Sep 02 01:35:55 +0000 2012
@ameliarobson I feel like we completely ignore this huge group in our community. #usyd students walk past Redfern daily, ignorant. #FHL2012 Sun Sep 02 01:32:36 +0000 2012
Why does so much of our Indigenous health promotion focus on rural/remote when health outcomes are needlessly low in Redfern? #FHL2012 Sun Sep 02 01:23:42 +0000 2012
Learning about cultures - all cultures - is just as important as learning how to insert cannulas #FHL2012 Sun Sep 02 01:22:45 +0000 2012
Auntie Kerrie: if you're going to an Indigenous community, go with 'big ears' to avoid being 'medical tourists' #FHL2012 Sun Sep 02 01:21:10 +0000 2012
Auntie Kerrie: We need to understand the whole person in their social environment to understand the health of a person #FHL2012 Sun Sep 02 01:18:45 +0000 2012
We need to remove silos from education. YES!! I love this guy. #FHL2012 Sun Sep 02 01:17:45 +0000 2012
Love the Qu about making health part of life - education, services, access, transport. We need to build partnerships. #FHL2012 Sun Sep 02 01:16:37 +0000 2012
On stage - how does the "limbo" of detention affect the mental health of refugees? Difficult to seek services when arrive in Aus #FHL2012 Sun Sep 02 01:15:42 +0000 2012
Cliffe: medicalised version of risk does not account for social aspects #FHL2012 Sun Sep 02 01:11:18 +0000 2012
Cliffe: power currently with HCPs. We need to understand what individuals really need. #FHL2012 Sun Sep 02 01:10:49 +0000 2012
