This 2009-10 project is part of a National partnership agreement (NPA) on Closing the gap. The main component of the project was a study by the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP) on behalf of the Commonwealth Department of Health and Ageing (DoHA), in consultation with key stakeholders including the National Aboriginal Health Community Controlled Organisation (NACCHO). The study aimed to identify existing national Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultural safety training (CST) programs in Australia. The study also made recommendations on how the Commonwealth Government could implement a CST program.
The outcomes from the study have been published as a report (see related publications.) The report later informed the development of an RACGP project called Implementing a RACGP response to the cultural awareness training requirements of the Indigenous Practice Incentive 2010 (see links below). This latter project included the development of an RACGP online cultural safety training activity for GPs titled Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultural awareness in general practice (see links below).
