Training Programs & Courses

Carbal Institute of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Research (CIHR)

Our training courses have been developed by the Carbal Institute of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Research with the objective of delivering culturally-appropriate and relevant education to health and clinical support professionals in Queensland.

Many of our education packages are accredited with RACGP and ACRRM for General Practitioners to achieve their respective CPD points. Through our education and promotion efforts, we aim to promote effective stakeholder and community engagement for the advancement of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health and wellbeing by advancing cultural competency in service providers in our region.

Our ever-expanding suite of educational content that can be delivered via three main pathway options:

  • Independently as a service-to-client provider;
  • Sponsorship (eg, Primary Health Network PHN sponsorship or National Best Practice Unit);
  • Under contract with Registered Training Organisations.

Our education delivery has also expanded to provide online learning via our MoodleCloud learning platform ‘Carbal at Home.

Our online learning was developed with the intent to increase flexibility for participants, without sacrificing interactivity that is critical for in-depth learning as per the RACGP and ACRRM criteria.
