Inner Western Courier Thursday Not Used Anymore : July 9th 2009
INNER WEST COURIER, Thursday, July 9, 2009 9 www.innerwestcourier.com.au NEWS Quicknews FLUFFY SLIPPER DANGER They may be cosy, but your fluffy slippers could slip you up this winter, the Sydney South West Area Health Service has warned. Associate Professor Vasi Naganathan from the Aged Care and Rehabilitation Service said flimsy or poorly fitted slippers were dangerous. Avoid wearing shoes or slippers which are too tight or loose fitting or which don t have sufficient grip on the bot- tom, he said. Wearing socks or stockings without shoes or slip- pers can also be a falls hazard. Keeping physically active can re- duce the risk of falling, he said. ABORIGINAL AUTHOR Author Lorraine McGee-Sippel is coming to Ashfield on Friday to talk about her memoir,Hey Mum, What s a Half-Caste? This free event is part of Ashfield Council s NAIDOC Week celebrations. No bookings are required. It will take place at 1pm on level 3 of the Ashfield Civic Centre. DISEASE MONITORING Disease control in NSW hospitals will be stepped up a notch with mandatory monitoring and re- porting of healthcare-associated infections. Aimed at improving patient care and safety in public hospitals, infection data will now be published on a quarterly basis. Health Minister John Della Bosca said the State Government had committed $25.4 million over four years to improve infection control. He said NSW Health and the Clinical Excellence Commission would work with hospitals to mini- mise the risk of patients contract- ing infections. Put kids first, says Rein Lana Lam Therese Rein meets Ashfield Primary School students on Tuesday. Picture: SIMON CHILLINGWORTH ~PP294646 SHE'S a mother, a clinical psychol- ogist, a successful businesswoman and the wife of the Prime Minister. This week, Therese Rein added another string to her bow: national children's champion for the National Association for Preven- tion of Child Abuse and Neglect. NAPCAN announced Ms Rein's appointment at Ashfield Primary School on Tuesday. Ms Rein said she looked forward to working with NAPCAN on a range of initiatives. ''We all need to make children our first priority,'' she said. ''For many years, NAPCAN has been a leader in raising awareness, developing and promoting effective strategies and tirelessly advocat- ing for children. ''Thinking seriously about what we do impacts on kids and building a society that truly acts in their best interests.'' NAPCAN chief executive Maree Faulkner said Ms Rein was an ideal figurehead for the advocacy body because of her profile and pro- fessional expertise. ''Even more importantly, she has the vision and the passion to be a champion for the wellbeing and safety of all Australian children,'' Ms Faulkner said. Every year, more than 30,000 children are abused or neglected in Australia. NAPCAN was established more than two decades ago and has run many national campaigns to raise awareness of child abuse and neglect. ''Now, it's time to get broad ownership of the issues and Ms Rein perfectly fits the bill,'' Ms Faulkner said. Ashfield Primary School runs a Good Beginnings program which founded by NAPCAN in 2000. It helps parents and preschoolers transition into the school environ- ment.
