Description

This two-page colour pamphlet provides rural placement students and health practitioners with practical tips about how to engage respectfully with Indigenous patients and colleagues in Mount Isa, Queensland. The tips in the pamphlet include:

The pamphlet was produced by the School of Medicine and Dentistry at James Cook University (JCU), in collaboration with the Mount Isa Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Reference Group (MIATSIRG). The aim of the MIATSIRG is to support JCU in delivering their services to Indigenous communities in a culturally appropriate manner, and to improve how JCU engages with Indigenous communities. Some of the general information in the pamphlet may be useful for health practitioners working in Indigenous settings outside of Mount Isa.
