Module to enhance the cultural awareness of GPs and practice staff

CPD accredited activity

The Introduction to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultural awareness in general practice activity aims to improve the health of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples by enhancing the cultural awareness of GPs, general practice staff (Practice Managers, Practice Nurses, Receptionists), medical students, primary health care staff, and other health care providers.

This online module was developed as an alternative pathway to increase access to cultural awareness training.

This 6 hour CPD Accredited Activity aims to help participants to: extend their knowledge about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander history and culture, explore how attitudes and values can influence perceptions, assumptions and behaviours in a clinical setting, and discuss key ways the practice team can be more culturally aware.  This module is a 40 CPD point accredited activity.
