This podcast, by way of a case study and experiential discussion, explores some of the health and cultural beliefs within Torres Strait Island culture. This episode highlights some of the ways in which culture may influence patients’ experiences and perceptions of emergency medical care.
This episode features Mr Rob Timmings, Nurse educator and Remote Area Nurse, and Ms Sharon Mallie, ED Indigenous Health Liaison Officer.
The Indigenous Health and Cultural Competency (IH&CC) project, developed in the Education Department, will provide IMGs and other doctors working in Emergency Medicine (EM) with education resources to strengthen their understanding of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander as well as other culturally and linguistically diverse communities as related to appropriate medical care delivery in the emergency setting.
This project is funded by the Australian Government.
