Abstract

Introduction/background:
Identity and connection with family and Aboriginal ways of knowing, doing and being are at the heart of what Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander people are all about. As a Rural Health Education team strategically located within the Three Rivers University Department of Rural Health (TRUDRH) and co-located within a regional university, we are uniquely positioned to promote and support creative and high-quality rural student placement experiences in our footprint.
A core component of delivering high quality health care for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in both the Aboriginal community-controlled health sector and mainstream health services is ensuring cultural safety for patients and families. As a Clinical Educator in Indigenous Health with the Three Rivers UDRH, it was important to establish relationships with the stakeholders within the Aboriginal Controlled Health sector to establish high quality rural clinical learning experiences for students in an Indigenous context. By utilising Yindymarra within this space we are developing interprofessional relationships and trust to provide opportunities for students undertaking placements to learn and deliver culturally safe health care, and contribute to increasing local capacity and maintaining sustainable partnerships within communities. Students’ cultural awareness is heightened as they reflect on their own values and cultural identity, whilst recognising and respecting difference in others.
How do we encourage responsible, respectful and honest interactions between students and stakeholders in building trusting relationships?
Can this type of placement promote student–patient interactions and student–community connectedness?
Was this innovative placement opportunity an enriching learning experience for students?
