Released in July by NSW Minister for Health, Gillian Skinner, the NSW Health and the Arts Framework is another great document reinforcing the role of arts and cultural activities in health promotion and service delivery. Developed collaboratively by a Ministerial Taskforce, which included the Institute's Executive Director Dr Emma O'Brien, the Framework aims to improve the health of the community through integrating the arts into the design and delivery of health services and public health messaging.
The document is divided into three areas; Governance, Partnerships and Funding and Operational Guidelines, Resources and Information Exchange.
