Online Course

The online course will allow for flexibility to access similar content provided in our face-to-face workshops. CAT online will provide similar topic content and upon conclusion will allow for open communication between facilitators and participants within an interactive Zoom video session.

CAT Online is ACRRM accredited for 12 PDP points and pending confirmation for RACGP 40 CPD points.

CAT is essential training for clinics who utilise the government incentive, PIP IHI.

The PIP IHI has 3 components as incentive for clinics:

$1000 awarded for sign on payment
$250 patient registration payment (per patient per year)
$250 Outcomes payment (up to $250 per patient per year)

These payments can be utilised to assist practices to undertake specified activities that seek to improve the provision of care to Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander patients. The PIP IHI requires at least 2 staff members to undertake cultural awareness training, where at least one of whom must be a GP.
