Australian Aboriginal child health modules
The RACP developed the Australian Aboriginal Child Health Modules to improve cultural awareness in healthcare delivery and understanding of the cultural and socio-economic determinants of health.
- Cultural awareness relating to Aboriginal families and communities.
- Social determinants of Aboriginal child health – past, present and future.
- The spectrum of common illnesses in Aboriginal children in remote and urban settings (including ear, skin, and eye infections, anaemia, bronchiectasis, rheumatic heart disease and post-infectious glomerulonephritis).
- Developmental problems, including Foetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders, and the effects of early life trauma (adverse social, nutritional and emotional experiences) on development.
Participation in these activities can be claimed in the MyCPD program under Category 3: Self Assessment Programs at 2 credits per hour.
This Project has been funded by the Department of Health and Ageing under the Rural Health Continuing Education Sub-program (RHCE) Stream One which is managed by the Committee of Presidents of Medical Colleges.
