Menzies seminar series 


Sue Ferguson-Hill presents ‘Information on the Indigenous-AEDI project and its link to the national rollout of the AEDI’, on Friday 15 August, from 10am to 12pm.

The Telethon Institute for Child Health Research has been involved in the design and development of an Australian Early Development Index as a national project since 2004.

In 2007 the Institute was funded to develop and evaluate a modified version of the AEDI for use with Indigenous children. The I-AEDI project is funded by DEEWR and Shell Australia and managed by the Kulunga Research Network at the Telethon Institute and also forms part of the national AEDI project which is managed jointly by the Centre for Community Child Health (Melbourne) and the Telethon Institute (Perth).

In her presentation Sue will discuss the context, objectives and governance arrangements in more detail.

Sue is a Senior Research Officer with the Indigenous-Australian Early Development Index Project, Kulunga Research Network, Telethon Institute for Child Health Research, Perth.

This seminar takes place in the Menzies Seminar Room, John Mathews Building, Royal Darwin Hospital Campus.
