NABS attends Tasmanian Health Conference

Posted by Ali Dowl - NABS Interpreter on 30 November 2015

Our interpreter in Tasmania, Ali Dowl, recently represented NABS at the "Tasmanian Health Conference" in Hobart.

This event is organised by the Australian Medical Association (AMA) and brings together people from all parts of the health system. The conference had a broad range of speakers and particularly looked at IT and how technology is being used in health care.

Chatting to many people in the exhibition space meant we could spread the word about NABS services. We also focused on promoting the concept of a "deaf friendly" practice or service.

"Deaf friendly" meaning....

  • Patients can book or contact the service by SMS &/or email
  • Reminders or communication about changes of appointment are sent by SMS
  • Staff know how to book interpreters and are happy to do so
  • Reception staff know how to communicate with a deaf person when they arrive

Let's hope the word spreads and Tassie's health system is more accessible for the deaf community as a result!
