Documentary about AHWs on Rural Health Channel on October 30th

Date posted: 17 October 2012

A half-hour documentary showcasing the role and function of specific Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Workers (A&TSIHWs) will be screened on the Rural Health Channel (RHC) on October 30th.

The documentary will include interviews, case examples and testimonials from non-Indigenous health professionals. It will be followed by a live and interactive panel discussion and question-and-answer session of 45 to 60 minutes, which will be screened on both the RHC and the internet (via webcast).

These programs are part of a multimedia package that is being developed by the Rural Health Education Foundation to showcase, promote and support the role and function of A&TSIHWs. The multimedia package is being produced following a recommendation by the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health worker project. Two thousand copies of the package will be distributed free to health professionals and organisations across Australia.

For more information, visit the Rural Health Education Foundation website, or read Growing our future: the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health worker project final report.
