Working with Indigenous patients

The Australian and New Zealand College of Anaesthetists Indigenous health podcast series has been developed to provide an introduction to working with Indigenous patients.

This series focuses on providing resources to Australian rural and regional Fellows, trainees and international medical graduate specialists, though the principles discussed also would usually apply in urban practice. The underlying importance of respect applies to all cross-cultural interactions. Topics covered to date are :

* Asking about Indigenous status
* Communication
* Consent
* Culture
* Culture shock (IMGS)
* Diffusing anger
* Pain management
* Pre-operative visit
* Traditional parenting
