Report: "What Works To Engage Fathers?"

On September 14th of 2011, the 'What Works To Engage Dads?' forum, was held at Mary MacKillop Place in North Sydney.

Following on from what was a most enjoyable and most useful day, we are very pleased to share with you the report from the event.  Please find a copy of the report available for you to download here.

This report provides a fitting summary of the day and we hope that you will share it around with your colleagues and in your practices.

Adopting an approach that actively includes fathers is proven to pay great dividends in improving child and family health outcomes.  Not only is being father-inclusive good for your client families, it is also hugely positive for your own organisations by adopting a stance that acknowledges the vital roles of both parents in family health.

I would like to thank you for making the time to attend this forum and be part of what is very a much an innovative approach in health.  And I would like to thank our sponsoring partners and speakers for making the day possible.

All the best,
