Description

This resource package on kidney health was developed as part of the research project Sharing the true stories: improving communication between health staff and their Aboriginal patients. The resource package consists of five key encounters between health staff and their Yolngu patients (and family members) that were videotaped during the project. Participants were interviewed to find out what they believed they had communicated during the encounter and what they had understood from the other participants, as well as being interviewed about their more general experiences with renal care and intercultural communication. The videos were then analysed with the involvement of most of the participants, and information from all these sources was integrated into case studies:
