The Dulili Café brought together more than 120 frontline workers and community service providers from across Brisbane for a morning of networking, knowledge sharing and relationship building.
‘Dulili’ is the Jagera word for together, representing the traditional custodians of the land RBWH is situated on, alongside the Turrbal people.
The event was an opportunity for attendees to gain an insight into how the hospital’s many services interconnect with community services to support good patient outcomes. All attendees were encouraged to bring information materials from their place of work to exchange with other organisations.
RBWH Emergency and Trauma Centre First Nations Senior Health Worker Julie Allen said the event was developed in partnership with Brisbane City Council and the Central Interagency Network with the support of the RBWH Executive team.
“The event aimed to create impactful relationships and partnerships that help build the capacity of community networks, not-for-profit and non-government organisations,” Julie said.
“We wanted to encourage the stakeholders and attendees at the event to establish joint ventures, partnerships and service delivery to meet the cultural, social and economic requirements of our community.
“We know that through building better relationships, optimising health integration and working together, we can have better outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander patients.”
