The summer school is an international multiprofessional and interdisciplinary workshop for students and young professionals. The teaching method is interactive - with the opportunity for dialogue and discussions in seminars, workshops and debates - involving students and teachers alike. The topics were proposed, evaluated and explored by an international planning group formed by some of the participating students over a six-month period. Supervised by established professionals, the process produced the baseline material for the course.
Mandating vaccines for health care workers appears to be a convenient way to limit spread of infection. However, these techniques, especially in flu vaccination, can lead to a false sense of security. They can overshadow and replace other very effective practices to control spread of infection.

Care-A Person-Centered Primary Health Care Response.In this presentation I will highlight the importance of a person-centered approach in engaging vulnerable urban Australian Aboriginal patients in primary health care. I will draw on my experience as a general practitioner working within a team in a Multidisciplinary Community Health Service which serves a relatively high proportion of urban Aboriginal Australians in its catchment area. Many of the challenges faced can be seen to relate to globalisation- the human story of migration over the millennia, and in the Australian context over the past 250 years- with its continuing impact on the local indigenous peoples.
