• Welcome

    Welcome to the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health and Cultural Safety Online Learning Resource

    This online learning resource will support your appreciation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander history and culture, the impact of colonisation, and subsequent impacts on health for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples. This learning resource will also focus on cultural safety in healthcare to support improved health outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples.

    There are 20 topics in this learning resource. Each topic includes key information, activities to support learning and questions for reflection. It is suggested that you spend a minimum of 30 – 45 minutes on each topic. 

    This learning resource asks for considered reflection on learning at the end of each topic. However, content in this module that is related to clinical practice is assessable as part of the second part exam.
