Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Cultural Safety in Clinical Practice


AIDA's Cultural Safety training workshop is an 8.5-hour face-to-face course delivered by Indigenous doctors. The day will offer participants the opportunity to be immersed in content developed by Indigenous doctors with lived experience of cultural safety within clinical settings focusing on the ‘Clinical Application of Cultural Safety’.

This compelling training helps participants to extend their knowledge about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander healthcare experience, explores how attitudes and values can influence perceptions, assumptions and behaviours in a clinical setting, and discusses specific ways to be more culturally aware. Reframing the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health narrative and using strengths-based approaches to enhance the experiences of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples within the healthcare system, to improve health outcomes.

A number of case studies are weaved through the training and will engage participants to develop, review and update the perceptions and understandings underlying their responses to the case study scenarios in line with the progression of their learnings.

The workshop includes interactive and experiential teaching that encourages participants to reflect, obtain feedback on and discuss improvements in clinical practice and cultural safety in the healthcare experience for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. The training will be delivered from 8.30am to 5.00pm.
