Final reflections

Hear Professors Roianne West and Gregory Phillips present final conclusions about delivering safer healthcare to Australia's First Peoples.
We have now come to the end of the journey and we hope that you have and will continue to build your cultural capabilities in your workplace. It is a challenge but by building relationships and partnerships and applying both clinical and culturally safe care providing safer healthcare for Australia’s First Peoples is possible. And finally I’d like to share with you what Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health means to me. It means my people having the same opportunities as every other Australian. It means my grandson who was born last week not being born into disadvantage.
It means my grandmother and my grandfather not dying 20 years earlier than what they should have, that we go without eldership and that we go without leadership. In the full context of Indigenous Affairs, without the health of our people we can’t fight for our land, we can’t fight for our rights and we can’t fight for the education of our kids. So for me, Aboriginal health is everything. So, thanks for joining us on the journey of learning about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples’ health. As you will have learned, we all have a role to play in improving health outcomes and if we do this well improving Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples’ health can actually improve the system for everyone.
Thanks for participating.

Congratulations on completing the course. We’re so pleased you could join us.

We hope you have been inspired to reflect on ways we can all make a difference in the workplace and to advocate for social change and greater equality in the health system for Australia’s First Peoples.
