The Working Well course assists doctors and other health professionals develop cultural safety and awareness when working for Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Services (ACCHS). Learners are invited to complete the course either on their own or together with a group of colleagues or with their supervisor.
Topics covered in the course include:
A range of people share their stories of working in Aboriginal health. Aboriginal health practitioners, ACCHS managers, experienced GPs and GP Registrars tell their stories via recorded audio interviews, illustrations and transcripts.
Short videos showcasing how ACCHS operate and the role of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Practitioners are included throughout the course to provide real life examples of working in communities. Learners are able to take their own notes within the course whilst watching the videos and listening to the stories.
Text is kept to a minimum throughout the course. Clear and concise focus questions, key points and advice are given for each topic. Video, illustrations and audio are used to provide multi-modal forms of content delivery.
At the end of each topic learners are invited to complete a short multiple-choice quiz to gauge their understanding of the content. On completion of the quiz, learners are able to consolidate their learning by printing key points, their notes, additional resources or even a complete PDF copy of the topic.
The Working Well online course was developed in collaboration with Northern Territory General Practice Education (NTGPE), AMSANT and the Danila Dilba Health Service (DDHS). It received a mention from the World Health Organisation.
