HITH Society Journal

The HITH Society Journal supports clinicians, administrators, policy makers and the consumer to be better informed about the latest and/or interesting HITH related research. The HITH Society would like to thank Dr Anne-marie Boxall was the editor for over 3 years, Dr. Venta Terauds who was the editor for the past 16 months and we welcome Dr. Fiona Stennard.

After completing a PhD in molecular biology, Dr Fiona Stennard gained ten years biomedical research experience at the University of Cambridge in the United Kingdom, and the Victor Chang Cardiac Research Institute in Sydney. She is now based in Hobart, Tasmania where she combines freelance editing and writing with part time university teaching of science, pharmacy and medical undergraduates.

The HITH Society Journal is entering its 6th year and is produced quarterly. If you have any articles of note or interest please send them to the HITH Society for comment.

HITH Newsletters are available within the Member's Area.

HITH Query Line

The NHIG was given the task of setting up an email discussion group or HITH Query line, on HITH related issues as a resource for all members of the society. This email discussion list allows all clinicians (doctors, nurses and allied health) and managers to post questions, or request solutions to problems that other HITH clinicians may be able to resolve. The query line went ‘live’ in September 2008. It has now been superseded by our forum. Click here to go to the forum. Membership is required to access the forum where you can post articles, ask questions and engage with other members.
