Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Health Cultural Awareness Training
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Cultural Awareness Training is offered free throughout the year to rural students on clinical placement and, at a small fee, to local health professionals. The training exposes Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health, historical and cultural issues of the South West region and is coordinated by Deakin Rural Health staff in collaboration with local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.
Sessions are discipline-specific and designed to provide students with clinical insight into Indigenous health issues. The aim is to assist students in developing the skills and knowledge that will support them as health practitioners to deliver culturally-safe clinical care, and to see that what they do as individuals can make a difference to the health and well-being of Indigenous people.
