Australasian College for Emergency Medicine (ACEM) – Indigenous Health & Cultural Competency (IH&CC) project – New Module Series Launched

The ACEM has developed a comprehensive e-learning series covering a range of topics in Indigenous health and cultural competency. The modules have an ED context but the principles, knowledge and skills explored will be relevant for many other health practitioners as well. The first four new modules in the series of 10 are publically available.

They include case studies, videos of interviews with doctors, aboriginal liaison officers and cultural educators, and are grounded in the evidence of how culturally competent care can improve patient outcomes.

The first four modules are:
1. Introduction to culturally competent care
2. Culturally competent communication
3. Understanding health literacy and diversity of health beliefs
4. Understanding language diversity and working with interpreters.
