RWAV facilitates Cultural Respect and Appreciation workshops throughout Victoria. These workshops support healthcare workers to deliver culturally safe outreach services to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander clients. They are led by Wiradjuri / Wotjobulak Cultural Facilitator AJ Williams-Tchen (Social Worker, Nurse, Youth Worker, 2016 Victorian Indigenous Emerging Leader).
This practical and interactive workshop is offered at no cost to front-line staff and health professionals, who deliver outreach services to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander clients and their families. The aims of the workshop include:
• Identifying the barriers that affect contemporary Indigenous clients accessing health and community services.
• Recognising historical events that may impact current health.
• Learning about practical strategies and techniques for working with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander clients.
AASW, ACWA and RACGP accredited (2017)
