The RAP process is a reminder to the organisation that ‘Aboriginal health is everyone’s business’. Embedding accountability across the organisation ensures that everyone can play a role in the RACGP’s reconciliation process.
The RACGP has committed dedicated resources to support the development and facilitation of the RAP and reconciliation activities. These resources, together with the RAP Working Group, focus on ensuring everyone plays a role in reconciliation at the RACGP. Leaving reconciliation to one area prohibits other people from getting involved and from it being sustainable.
In addition to the above, the National Faculty of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health:
The RACGP is also a key partner of Leaders in Indigenous Medical Education (LIME), sponsors their conferences and regularly engages with LIME in key activities.
The RACGP has a position statement on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health, which has recently been updated, and a range of additional position statements relating to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health, including on Racism in the Healthcare System. Our remaining position statements are due to be updated in 2020.
