Framing Indigenous Health

 

Overview

This four day course provides health professionals with a foundation for working effectively in remote and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities. It examines significant issues remote communities face and the subsequent impact on service delivery. It places an emphasis on understanding health and well-being of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

It will explore the social determinants of health, the cause and effect relationship of Australia’s colonisation and development and the poorer health outcomes experienced by Indigenous Australians. Policies (past and present) in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Affairs, the manifestations of racism and issues of social justice and human rights will be discussed.

It will look at living and working in remote areas as a professional, examine sources of stress associated with remote practice and suggest strategies to manage stress.

The workshop will be held in two locations in the Northern Territory in 2017:

Alice Springs

Darwin

The workshop is presented by the Centre for Remote Health.
