This year, AIDA is developing a Cultural Safety Training Program. This will be delivered by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander doctors, to doctors and other health practitioners who are working with Indigenous Australians and communities. The program will be a clinically-focussed program designed to assist medical personnel to integrate cultural safety into their practices to improve healthcare delivery for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander patients. It will be enhanced by the unique insight of AIDA members and by a range of clinical case studies that have been experienced first-hand by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander doctors.
- AIDA has developed a position paper providing great resources to provide guidance on implementing cultural safety within healthcare called Cultural Safety for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Doctors, Medical Students and Patients
- The AIDA Cultural Safety Factsheet gives further context to the above position paper, which provides some examples of work AIDA has undertaken to advocate for cultural safety.
- The AIDA Cultural Safety Toolkit is a broad compilation of education and information resources that is intended to evolve over time. AIDA welcomes feedback and suggestions to enhance this resource.
