GP Synergy is excited to launch a new resource-rich website that provides information on GP training in Aboriginal health as well as being a great starting point for a better understanding of Aboriginal health.
GP Synergy’s Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Cultural Education Unit Manager, Mr Anthony Paulson, said the website is just one of the ways GP Synergy is delivering on its strategic vision to help close the gap.
“The website supports GP registrars and Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Services (ACCHS) by providing information about Aboriginal health training posts in NSW and ACT, and GP Synergy initiatives and support available to ACCHSs.
“The site also provides a user-friendly experience for anyone interested in knowing more about Aboriginal health.
“We’re providing access to a range of cultural resources including key dates of significance, cultural awareness resources, clinical resources, and links to key health and population data,” he said.
The website launch was part of today’s meeting of GP Synergy’s Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Committee.
Committee membership comprises CEOs and other community-based health professionals from the NSW and ACT Aboriginal community controlled health sector including the peak body for NSW, the Aboriginal Health and Medical Research Council of NSW.
“Working collaboratively with Aboriginal community controlled health services is important to GP Synergy.
“The cultural education unit – the first to be established by a GP regional training organisation – has been able to develop a range of resources with the strategic oversight of the committee.
“The website now allows us to bring those resources together and make them more widely available,” he said.
