Description

This half hour DVD includes ten short interviews with Indigenous health workers from around Australia who share their experiences as health professionals. It highlights the role they play in delivering culturally safe and effective health care, their commitment and their work towards closing the health gap for their people.

The resource also includes an interactive panel discussion, recorded live, which provides information on the role and function of Indigenous health workers, particularly their broad scope of practice. Health workers who have the title 'health practitioner' are required to be registered under the Health worker registration scheme and the panel discusses the different state and territory transitions to the national scheme.

The resource was developed by the Rural Health Education Foundation and funded by Health Workforce Australia.

WARNING: Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander viewers are warned that these programs may contain images of people who have died.
