Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander allied health video series launched

Indigenous Allied Health Australia (IAHA) and the Australian Indigenous HealthInfoNet (HealthInfoNet) recently released the first in a series of films they have developed showcasing Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander allied health professionals.

The films are focused on promoting allied health workforce development including allied health careers, support available and needed for success with individuals sharing their experiences from a cultural and professional perspective who are contributing to an inter-professional leadership approach to improve the health and wellbeing of Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander peoples.

The videos capture stories and vital information from allied health students and graduates on their successes, challenges and career development enablers. The intention is that these stories will be key resources for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander individuals and communities considering a health career and for employers looking to improve their cultural safety and responsiveness in ensuring high quality services and workforce development strategies, with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

For more information, please visit the IAHA website. You can watch the first video by visiting the HealthInfoNet Youtube channel.

The rest of the series will be released throughout 2019 with announcements on the IAHA website.
