What people are saying about Croakey.
The Oceanic Palliative Care Conference (21OPCC) is the leading conference in the Oceanic region for anyone who is interested in quality palliative care and end-of-life care, thought-leadership, information, and ideas. Contracting Croakey Media Services for September 2021, ensured PCA maximum media coverage to a wider audience across health, medical and social sectors. Croakey published in-depth news features previewing and promoting the conference, and Croakey journalists live Tweeted the conference across the conference and pre-conference events, contributing to our conference trending on the 9th of September 2021. Croakey also allowed PCA to manage the @WePublicHealth twitter account, which further helped us share the conference to a bigger audience. In total Croakey provided eight articles and an hour-long podcast post-event. Delegates noted the interaction with Croakey as a great asset to the event and it was a pleasure to work with such a committed, talented and diligent group of professionals. Thank you again for your work, and we hope to continue our relationship in years to come.

Loved the program. Love the Croakey news service – think it really gives the conference a bigger audience!
Great event and extensive social media coverage
The Oceanic Palliative Care Conference (#21OPCC)
It was great to be able to collaborate with the Croakey team for the COVID-19 CaLD Community Think Tank. The event was aimed at hearing from those working in multicultural and community organisations about the challenges they have faced during the COVID-19 pandemic but to also capture lessons learnt and strategies that have enhanced engagement and to share those lessons. By working with Cate and the Croakey team we were able to capture those insights and to disseminate them in a timely way which is critical during a pandemic. The resulting article captured all of the key messages in a format that was relevant and tailored to the relevant audiences. The team were easy to connect and work with and I would certainly look to repeat the partnership again.

It’s a must to stay connected with Croakey Health Media. They know all about what’s happening in Public Health, right up to the last minute!

HUGE congratulations to all the Croakey team on your coverage of our Summit. To say we have been delighted with the event, your coverage and the wash up is an understatement. You did such a fantastic job. I know how much there was to synthesise! I was particularly impressed with the flair and variety in how you approached the various pieces of coverage.
Chief Executive Officer, Consumer Health Forum of Australia re: #ShiftingGears (2021)
Croakey Health Media was the official media partner for VicHealth’s Life and Health Reimagined series (2020). Croakey’s indepth coverage of the five-week series amplified the conversation about how we can make life after coronavirus better and healthier for everyone.
Croakey’s coverage included compelling articles about each week’s topic and wrap-ups of the live-streamed events, live tweeting, a Twitter takeover of the @WePublicHealth account and a podcast summarising the series.
Having Croakey as our media partner enabled us to reach a more diverse public health audience and introduced new voices and experts to the discussion. Croakey’s team also generated a lively dialogue on social media about the series, driving debate and frank discussion on the important topic of how do we create a healthier, fairer, better world post-pandemic.
I would highly recommend Croakey Conference News Service to anyone seeking an innovative and collaborative media partner for a conference or event.
Mental Health Victoria – Croakey Conference News Service coverage of #Lived Experience online forum
Mental Health Victoria, in partnership with the Victorian Healthcare Association, ran an online forum on the importance of embedding the voice of lived experience in mental health system reform.
Croakey journalist Marie McInerney did an exceptional job of covering the event through both real-time social media posts and a written article summarising the discussion and themes that arose during the forum.
Her regular Twitter posts throughout the event generated lively discussion and helped emphasise and elevate the important contributions from the consumer voices.
The article that Marie wrote on the event, titled “Imagine a mental health system that meets the needs of consumers and carers” took the reader on a journey through the forum’s key themes along with images and other media to supplement the discussion. It received very positive feedback from all involved.

Croakey is an outstanding achievement and an absolutely essential part of the public health scene. It’s required reading for anyone who wants to know what’s happening, why, and what should be happening. Croakey is produced by an exceptional team of editors, authors and other contributors. Always a top read.
Emeritus Professor Mike Daube
Croakey not only gives me up to date information on contemporary health issues, but allows me to send my health information across Australia in an instant. It is also the perfect vehicle for starting peoples’ movements, engaging with Indigenous peoples and our issues, and building a community that has at its basis a desire to make positive change happen. It is polite and political, informative and inspiring. Active engagement is what Croakey does – and I like it!
