Cultural Safety Training Roadshow with Banaam Pty Ltd

Healthy North Coast is committed to improving the health of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and communities. Part of our commitment is to improve cultural safety and the quality of service delivered by health care providers to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

We invite you to join your primary health care colleagues for a cultural safety workshop in one of eight locations. This training will develop your understanding of cultural safety and how to ensure culturally safe health care. Morning and evening workshops are available in some locations.

The training will be delivered by Banaam Pty Ltd – leaders and innovators in the application of cultural frameworks to support cultural safety.

Each three-hour workshop is eligible for self-reported professional development points. A certificate of attendance will be provided upon completion.

“Cultural safety education is integral to health system reform and improving the quality of health services for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people,” says Marni Tuala, Deputy Director of Aboriginal Health at Healthy North Coast.

“Cultural safety is an essential element of clinical competency and will not only improve your capacity to provide optimal health care, it will ultimately save lives.

“We encourage general practitioners, practice nurses, allied health practitioners, pharmacists, specialists and practice managers to attend this training.”

The cultural knowledge that Banaam provides comes from a team that live and breathe Indigenous culture every day. This deep cultural connection is what sets Banaam’s training apart from other cultural safety training providers.

The Banaam program has achieved transformational results and lasting change in a range of different settings. These dynamic workshops present participants with an engaging and easy to understand overview of Indigenous cultural principles and provide a lens through which to see the world.

“You don’t need to be a specialist to create a culturally safe space,” says Kyle Slabb, Co-Founder, Banaam, “but you do need a basic understanding of cultural systems. We look forward to sharing this with you.”

What to expect

This free-to-attend training is for all primary health care clinicians wanting to engage with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities and gain a better understanding of Indigenous cultural principles.

It will teach you the fundamental principles of Indigenous culture and the major components of Indigenous cultural frameworks and systems that have been developed over hundreds of generations.
