“Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Workers are deeply committed to improving health standards in their communities, but are not always fully empowered to do so.”

An invitation from NACCHO CEO Lisa Briggs

Lisa Final

I would like to share with you a project that the Rural Health Education Foundation has been developing with the guidance of an Advisory Panel, of which Denise Burdett – our Workforce Policy Officer – has been a part. 

“A Unique and Valued Profession:  Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Workers” is a multi-media package of a series of programs, short video clips and a comprehensive learning guide.

The resources have been produced to showcase the unique role that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Workers have in Australia’s health sector and recognise the positive difference they are making to the health of their communities. The package is possible due to funding made available by Health Workforce Australia, an Australian Government Initiative. 

Included in this letter is a flyer about the live panel discussion – A Valued Profession: Cultural Expertise in the Health Team – that will be airing on Tuesday 26th February at 8pm AEDT

Ms Jenny Poelina, Chair of NATSIHWA will be on the panel and will be joined by Mr Peter Pangquee, Professor Richard Murray, Ms Rita Williams and Ms Angela Dufek.

I encourage you to tune into the program on the Rural Health Channel (channel 600 on the VAST satellite TV service) on NITV or online through a live webcast, accessible via www.rhef.com.au

I strongly encourage you to put questions or comments to the panel.  

Email them to questions@rhef.com.au or text to 0408 408 932.

If you are online you can submit your questions through the Live Talk button.

All the resources developed in this project will be packaged onto a DVD and will be shared with you all towards the end of April.  Please do not hesitate to contact the Rural Health Education Foundation or look on their website if you would like further information.

Lisa Briggs
Chief Executive Officer
