Rural doctors and other rural health professionals have always been concerned about the health and welfare of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

With two thirds of all Indigenous Australians living in rural or remote areas, we are often on the frontline of Indigenous healthcare provision.

Because of this, we are acutely aware of the inequities suffered by Indigenous Australians and their communities in terms of health outcomes, chronic disease and life expectancy.

We all have a role to play when it comes to Closing the Gap.”

The Rural Doctors Association of Australia (RDAA )  has chosen National Reconciliation Week to launch its revised policy, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health, which puts forward actions that need to be taken by Australia’s governments and other stakeholders like RDAA to Close the Gap in Indigenous health outcomes.

RDAA President, Dr Adam Colza, said the policy “puts right at the centre” the need to recognise the fundamental importance of socio-economic, environmental and cultural factors in improving health outcomes of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

Download NACCHO RDAA Revised Aboriginal Health Policy May 2018

RDAA Press Release : Reconciliation — “at the heart” of Closing the Gap

The Rural Doctors Association of Australia (RDAA) says the crucial role of Australia’s journey towards reconciliation — in empowering Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and improving their health outcomes — should not be underestimated.

“We know that additional, special efforts are still required to raise the health status of Aboriginal and Torres Strait\ Islander people to that of other Australians” he said.

“Crucially, these efforts will not just rely on improving health infrastructure or improving access to healthcare alone.

“They must also include recognition of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in Australia’s Constitution; recognition of Indigenous intergenerational trauma and the negative health effects that stem from it; and recognition of the importance of homeland, infrastructure, education, transport and employment on the health status of Indigenous Australians.

“These are not just throw-away lines — they are major determinants of health and well-being, and they must be factored into all strategies to better support Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and communities.

“They are just as important to Closing the Gap as ensuring access to basic living conditions like clean and continuous water supply, good housing, functional sewerage systems, a reasonable diet and nutrition, and education.

“Other crucial factors that are key to improving health outcomes for Indigenous Australians include:

  • involvement, partnership and leadership from local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in determining the type of health services best suited to local needs and resources
  • support for Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Services
  • a culturally respectful and consultative approach to policy and program development on all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health issues
  • an ongoing commitment in the healthcare sector to improving cultural sensitivity and understanding, to ensure the health and hospital system does not deter Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people from seeking care.

“And we all have a responsibility to recognise the trauma that multiple generations of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people have been through — and why reconciliation is so important for all of us in moving forward.”

The theme of National Reconciliation Week is Don’t Keep History A Mystery: Learn. Share. Grow. All Australians are being encouraged to learn more about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures and histories, to share that knowledge and help Australia grow as a nation.

1.Scholarships to improve regional health services

Health professionals in rural and regional Australia wanting to increase their skills are being encouraged to apply for financial support under the Australian Government’s Health Workforce Scholarship Program.

Officially launching the program today, Minister for Rural Health, Bridget McKenzie, said the Government was investing $11 million in the scholarships over three years from 2017-18 to help make health services more accessible for people living in country areas.

“The Health Workforce Scholarship Program provides support based on the needs of communities — whether for GPs, nurses, dentists or allied health professionals,” Minister McKenzie said.

“The program is delivering better outcomes for patients in rural and regional communities across Australia by supporting health practitioners to build up their professional skills.

“Support may be provided to health professionals already working in areas experiencing a shortage of services, or to those willing to move to areas where there is a lack of services.

“Importantly, most of the scholarships in the forthcoming round will include a ‘return of service’ obligation to ensure the recipients practise in rural and regional Australia for at least 12 months on completion of their studies.”

Geraldton resident and Indigenous Community Business Development Officer, Lenny Papertalk, is one health professional who has made the decision to apply for a scholarship.

“I will be applying for a scholarship to pursue a Masters of Social Work at University of Western Australia after having identified a high number of youth suffering from depression and mental illness within the Indigenous communities in Geraldton,” she said.

“I’m very committed to making a difference in rural health, so am hopeful of gaining this scholarship in order to improve health outcomes in my community.”

Tim Shackleton, CEO of Rural Health West in Western Australia, said the scholarship program would ultimately help to expand the range of health services available for people living in rural and remote communities in WA.

“The Health Workforce Scholarship Program will provide grants to postgraduate rural health professionals undertaking further study in the field of medicine, nursing or allied health,” he said.

“One-off bursary and support payments are available to help cover the cost of attending training and these payments can be put towards course fees, conference registrations, and accommodation and transports costs.”

The Health Workforce Scholarship Program is administered by a consortium of Rural Workforce Agencies (RWAs) led by Health Workforce Queensland. RWAs are located in all states and the Northern Territory, and all RWAs are included in the consortium.

The RWAs work closely with Primary Health Networks, local and state governments and other workforce planning groups to determine what skills are needed and where.

Further information about the Health Workforce Scholarship Program, including how to apply for a scholarship can be found on each of the Rural Workforce Agencies websites.

Young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people across Queensland can now apply to participate in this year’s Queensland Indigenous Youth Leadership Program (QIYLP).

Deputy Premier, Treasurer and Minister for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Partnerships Jackie Trad urged eligible people to apply and reap the benefits of QIYLP.

“This program is extremely beneficial to some of our youngest generations as it allows participants to develop their skills and gain valuable leadership experience,” Ms Trad said.

“QIYLP nourishes the ideas of young and emerging Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander leaders – allowing them to grow and create positive change in their communities.”

Minister for Child Safety, Youth and Women Di Farmer said the Queensland Indigenous Youth Leadership Program was a wonderful opportunity for young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to develop leadership skills and learn about influencing change.

“The program brings together 40 participants from across the state to participate in a six-day residential program where not only will they develop leadership skills but they will also learn about the democratic processes in Queensland,” Ms Farmer said.

“The program is one of the country’s most prestigious and effective Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander young leadership

programs.

“The young participants will undertake a range of experiences in QIYLP including leadership and professional development workshops, mentoring and networking opportunities and attend parliament workshops.”

“Many of these young people could be Indigenous or community leaders of the future and it is a great chance for them to have this type of experience under their belts as they embark into leadership roles,” Ms Farmer said.

“Applications are now open for those aged 18 to 25 years, for the six-day residential program that will take place in Brisbane from 30 June 2018 to 5 July 2018.

“There has already been more than 450 young people participate in QIYLP since its original inception in 2004 as a three day program, and what is even more pleasing is to see some returning as mentors and co-facilitators at this year’s program.

“I’d urge any young Aboriginal and Torres Strait young person to consider applying for the QIYLP.”

QIYLP is co-delivered by the Department of Child Safety, Youth and Women and the Queensland Parliamentary Service, and supported through a partnership with mining company Glencore.

Applications are open now and will close on 4 May 2018.

Young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people across Queensland can now apply to participate in this year’s Queensland Indigenous Youth Leadership Program (QIYLP).

Deputy Premier, Treasurer and Minister for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Partnerships Jackie Trad urged eligible people to apply and reap the benefits of QIYLP.

“This program is extremely beneficial to some of our youngest generations as it allows participants to develop their skills and gain valuable leadership experience,” Ms Trad said.

“QIYLP nourishes the ideas of young and emerging Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander leaders – allowing them to grow and create positive change in their communities.”

Minister for Child Safety, Youth and Women Di Farmer said the Queensland Indigenous Youth Leadership Program was a wonderful opportunity for young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to develop leadership skills and learn about influencing change.

“The program brings together 40 participants from across the state to participate in a six-day residential program where not only will they develop leadership skills but they will also learn about the democratic processes in Queensland,” Ms Farmer said.

“The program is one of the country’s most prestigious and effective Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander young leadership

programs.

“The young participants will undertake a range of experiences in QIYLP including leadership and professional development workshops, mentoring and networking opportunities and attend parliament workshops.”

“Many of these young people could be Indigenous or community leaders of the future and it is a great chance for them to have this type of experience under their belts as they embark into leadership roles,” Ms Farmer said.

“Applications are now open for those aged 18 to 25 years, for the six-day residential program that will take place in Brisbane from 30 June 2018 to 5 July 2018.

“There has already been more than 450 young people participate in QIYLP since its original inception in 2004 as a three day program, and what is even more pleasing is to see some returning as mentors and co-facilitators at this year’s program.

“I’d urge any young Aboriginal and Torres Strait young person to consider applying for the QIYLP.”

QIYLP is co-delivered by the Department of Child Safety, Youth and Women and the Queensland Parliamentary Service, and supported through a partnership with mining company Glencore.

Applications are open now and will close on 4 May 2018.
