    from ACEM Digital Media Added 796 3 1

    Please note that this episode contains terms and themes that should be considered respectfully. 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.

        • What is RVTS?


          from RVTS Added 576 1 0

          At RVTS we understand that the GP marketplace is complex and can often be confusing for candidates looking to upskill and train. This video helps navigate why RVTS is different to other medical training organisations. The target audience for RVTS are GP's who are located in rural or remote areas who work very long hours and where opportunities to network with fellow doctors and support agencies may be difficult or impractical. These doctors are more likely to find themselves cut off from available information and opportunities. If this sounds like you or you know someone who does, watch this video. The Remote Vocational Training Scheme is a vocational training program for medical practitioners in remote and isolated communities throughout Australia. The training provided meets the requirements for Fellowship of both ACRRM and RACGP. The RVTS is a four year program that has been designed to deliver structured distance education and supervision to doctors while they continue to provide general medical services to a remote and/or isolated community.
