Illawarra Shoalhaven behind DevelopingEM

The Illawarra Shoalhaven Local Health District (ISLHD) is situated just south of Sydney in New South Wales, Australia and provides health services for the residents of the Illawarra Shoalhaven region – around 400,000 people.

This region includes the Wollongong, Kiama, Shellharbour and Shoalhaven Local Government Areas.

ISLHD operates eight hospital sites and provide community health services from approximately 58 locations across the region.

Since 2017 ISLHD has officially supported the efforts of DevelopingEM and this year we have multiple faculty members from our home base supporting our efforts.

The Core Ultrasound workshop will have three faculty members from ISLHD

  • Angelo Abeywickreme
  • Ruchit Agrawal
  • Marcus Coelho

Our Nursing workshop will once again be coordinated by

  • Kate Curtis
  • Matt White

Our focus this year on the challenges and opportunities of delivery of healthcare for First Nations peoples will be assisted by a local cultural lead group

  • Sharon Bloxsome
  • Paul McCleod
  • Ryan Dashwood

supported by

  • Andrew Bezzina
  • Nathan Trist
  • Mark Newcombe

So ISLHD staff will be supporting this conference right across the program.

DevelopingEM is hugely thankful to ISLHD for making this beautiful region our home base and supporting us in the production of our last 3 conferences.
