REMH8002 (formerly HLTH8202) Remote and Indigenous Primary Health Care
Assignments; Tutorial Participation
This topic aims to develop the reflective practice of students in relation to their role within a multiprofessional team and with the remote and Indigenous community where they work. The topic examines ethics, reflective practice and power relationships as they relate to Indigenous health issues in a remote context. There is an emphasis on working cooperatively and productively within a Primary Health Care framework towards a common outcome of improving the health of remote people. Students are guided through a process of reflection that includes acknowledging their own professional, social, economic and cultural background, which locates them in specific positions of privilege, authority and power. Assessment tasks challenge students to convey their knowledge, understanding, reasoning and decision making in written form and in a culturally safe manner.
The aim of this topic is for health professionals to develop an understanding of and analyse issues relating to the context of Remote and Indigenous health practice, specifically in relation to ethics and the dynamics of power.
