Cultural Matter in the Development of an Interactive Multimedia Self-Paced Educational Health Program for Aboriginal Health Workers

Aboriginal and Islander Health Worker Journal
Volume 35 Issue 4 (Jun 2011)

Abstract: Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health workers are key providers of primary health services to Aboriginal communities especially in remote and rural areas. They are often overloaded with competing demands. There has been limited attention given to the maintenance and ongoing enhancement of their skills and knowledge following the completion of formal training. A culturally appropriate interactive multimedia self-paced health program as a mechanism to improve the accessibility and the use of scientific data and information for health purposes is proposed as a basic method for better supporting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander primary health care workers in their practice locations. This paper explores different approaches for the development of a culturally appropriate interactive multimedia educational health program for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health workers and it also explores cultural matters concerning program development in the light of existing literature.
