The public can play their part in the development of a culturally inclusive, interdisciplinary Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health curriculum framework for integration into entry level health profession training.
The aim of the framework is to better prepare health professionals to deliver culturally safe care for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians.
The development of the framework is being led by HWA in conjunction with Curtin University.
The first stage of the HPPP project is complete and work will now commence on implementation. A report containing the final HPPP and high level recommendations for implementation was approved by the Standing Council on Health on 8 November 2013.
A key HWA project has received recognition at a prestigious project management award ceremony over the weekend.
HWA’s Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Worker project won both the Project of the Year award and Community Service and Development category in the Institute of annual Project Management Achievement Awards in South Australia.
The project will now progress to the national awards ceremony on 15 October 2013.
Feedback is being sought on the current orientation and supervision support systems for International Medical Graduates (IMGs) in Australia and opportunities for improvement.
The purpose of the consultation is to improve access to appropriate orientation programs and systems for all new IMGs to Australia and to provide system-level improvements in the way supervision of IMGs is supported.
The views of interested parties obtained through this consultation will guide HWA in its recommendations to contribute to a better supported pathway.
