Abstract

Video Teaching Clips from A Unique and Valued Profession: Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Workers

Video Teaching Clips on the Unique and Valued Profession of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Workers are available and are free for use in your educational setting. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Workers are critical to improving the health and wellbeing of their people. They bring unique cultural skills and play a vital role that spans clinical intervention, health promotion, and community outreach and liaison.

These teaching clips have been taken from the ‘A Unique and Valued Profession’ Multimedia Project produced by the Rural Health Education Foundation. The project was developed to showcase, inform and educate all health professionals on the role and function of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Workers. The clips can be incorporated into your teaching; whether in lectures, learning activities or set assignments. They can be viewed independently, incorporated into a PowerPoint presentation, or included as hyperlinks embedded into documents. The copyright to this material is owned by Health Workforce Australia, and allows for these clips to be used “for study or training purposes”.

There are eight 3-5 minute video clips available. Patients, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Workers and Practitioners, and non-Indigenous Health Professionals from all over Australia feature in these clips and the original programs.

This project was produced by the Rural Health Education Foundation, and was possible due to funding made available by Health Workforce Australia, an Australian Government Initiative.

The LIME Network who advised and assisted in the design of these Video Teaching Clips.

Warning: Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander viewers are warned that these videos may contain images and voices of people who have died.
