Creating Cultural Safety for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Patients in Primary Care & On Country Cultural Experience

In the North Coast PHN 2021 Community Survey, 32% of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander participants said they stopped or delayed getting health care because they were unable to access culturally safe services. As Health Professionals, ensuring our practice is culturally safe is essential to increasing First Nation Peoples access to health services and intern, closing the gap.

This Cultural Safety Training is a comprehensive series designed to increase local cultural awareness and develop practical skills to enable health professionals to deliver culturally safe healthcare to their Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander patients on the North Coast.

Delivered in partnership with Ochre and Salt and Corporate Culcha, the training will be delivered in three parts, combining both self-paced online and face-to-face learning. The training is RACGP and ACRRM accredited for 6.5 CPD Hours.

Learning Objectives:

  • Consider Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander experiences of health and illness.
  • Explain the historical impact on contemporary Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
  • Enhance confidence to support Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander patients.
  • Evaluate your cultural safety practices and implement steps to provide culturally safe and acceptable healthcare to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander patients.
  • Appraise the diversity of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultural perspectives as individual and kinship structures and social determinants of health and wellbeing.
