In October, GP Synergy held our annual ACCHS cultural mentor network meeting.
The meeting featured fabulous guest speakers including Lowitja Institute CEO Janine Mohamad, Deputy CEO Healing Foundation Donna Burns and GP Synergy Aboriginal Cultural Education Unit Western Region Cultural Educator Gwen Troutman-Weir.
The meeting continued the theme of ‘building your toolbox’ and the sessions were focused on cultural safety and the cultural determinants, trauma informed healing and cultural exchange yarn-up.
The meeting provided an opportunity for professional development for cultural mentors and was designed to enhance how cultural mentors educate GP registrars in these important cultural areas. Plus it was a fantastic networking opportunity to debrief and share learnings.
