A partnership model in the development and implementation of a collaborative, cardiovascular education program for Aboriginal Health Workers

 

Overview

A partnership model was established with key organisations aimed at increased collaboration, skill development, cultural competence and increasing access to mentorship and expertise for Aboriginal Health Workers. A mixed method evaluation, using qualitative and quantitative data collection was undertaken prospectively. Knowledge and confidence scores increased over the course duration and students placed a very high value on clinical visits.
