Client: Health Workforce Australia
Feasibility Study to establish a Koori Clinical School for Indigenous Health
Project timeline: October - December 2012
Kristine Battye Consulting was contracted by Health Workforce Australia to assess best practice in the development and management of undergraduate student placements in an Indigenous community health setting. HWA is a national agency that aims to address the challenges of providing a skilled and innovative health workforce across Australia.
The feasibility study contributes to the understanding of a range of issues related to the training and support of Indigenous health professionals, and non-Indigenous health professionals that care for and provide clinical services to Indigenous people in a range of settings, and therefore has relevance to the broader objectives of HWA. The project identifies factors impacting on the capacity of ACCHOs to provide placements across a range of disciplines.
