Cultural Awareness - Pip Indigenous Health Incentive

Welcome to the Cultural Awareness module on RRMEO.

About this module

This module was originally written by Dr Louis Peachey (Senior Medical Officer, Atherton Hospital) and Kristin McBain (Research Officer, Mount Isa Centre for Rural and Remote Health.) It was updated by ACRRM in 2010 in consultation with them, and with Mary Martin from the Queensland Aboriginal and Islander Health Council (QAIHC).

The aim of this module is to provide knowledge and awareness of Australian Indigenous cultures in the context of health care. It is suitable for ACRRM members, as well as non-member general practice teams who wish to participate in the Practice Incentives Program (PIP) Indigenous Health Incentive.

This module is split into 3 parts as follows:

  • Part 1 - Introduction: Why learn about culture in Australian health care?
  • Part 2 - Health Status: Demographics, epidemiology and understanding illness from the patient'Â’s point of view.
    • Part 2.1 - Mental health, mental illness and conventional scales: are they cross-culturally sensitive?
  • Part 3 - Clinical Encounter: But how? Practical ways to engage cross-culturally.
