The National Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisation (NACCHO) and the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP) have worked together to develop resources for GPs and other health professionals to support culturally responsive primary healthcare for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, wherever they seek care.
A new resource hub has been launched on the RACGP website. It is home to resources that support primary healthcare that is accessible, effective and valued by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. The hub includes:
