Due to uncertainty with evolving Pandemic restrictions, we have tentatively set the new date for our clinical face-to-face workshop on Saturday, 10th October 2020.

We have also set-up an Online version of our CAT training on our new LMS platform: Carbal at Home.

The online version is currently ACRRM accredited for 30 PDP points awaiting confirmation of RACGP accreditation for 40 CPD points.

Carbal Cultural Awareness Training for General Practice

Carbal Cultural Awareness Training (CAT) is a six session, comprehensive course that provides health professionals with the practical tools to deliver culturally competent services.
It covers:

  • History
  • Culture
  • Health Education
  • Social and Emotional Wellbeing
  • Communication

Face-to-Face Workshop

Our CAT face-to-face workshop is a full-day, six session, comprehensive course that provides health professionals with the practical tools to deliver culturally competent services with emphasis on interactivity between our Indigenous facilitators and participants.

Online Course

Our CAT online course aims to allow for flexibility for interested participants who desire the content we provide for our face-to-face workshops, but are unable to travel to our location or require more flexibility with time for course completion. Our online courses will also mitigate for the unpredictable social restriction changes during this pandemic period. The online course will provide similar topic contents, with an opportunity for a 40 minute zoom session at the end with our facilitators for yarning and deeper interactivity needed for reflection and discussion.

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.
