Cultural Competency and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Educational Resources
The Australasian College of Dermatologists is committed to developing the dermatology workforce to recognise and respond to the diverse needs of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander patients and communities, with cultural sensitivity and clinical expertise.
We offer a number of learning opportunities for our Fellows, trainees, staff and other health professionals on intercultural competency and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health. We also work with a range of organisations to bring together resources to build knowledge and skills to support the delivery of safe and culturally responsive healthcare.
