Introduction to First 1000 Days Australia
6-7 August 2018

Cost: $800.

This two-day Master Class will present the overall objectives of the Australian Model of the First 1000 Days, which aims to provide a coordinated, comprehensive intervention addressing the needs of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children from (pre)conception to two years of age, thereby laying the foundation for their future health and wellbeing.

Through a mix of presentations, group work and case studies, the course will explore how the Model can be established and implemented across different Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities Australia-wide in partnership with the University of Melbourne and Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisations.

Day 1 will provide background information on the international context for the First 1000 Days and a comprehensive understanding of the novel approach of the Australian Model of the First 1000 Days intervention cohort study.

Day 2 will present an overview of the Australian evidence base for the First 1000 Days and a practical guide to establishing the First 1000 Days in organisations and institutions. The application of interventions, data and evidence considerations, and key deliverables for this process for organisations in your area will also be explored, and opportunities and challenges discussed.
