Brain Injury Rehabilitation virtual education sessions started in August. The current sessions have been focused on working with Aboriginal people and families in the NSW Brain Injury Rehabilitation Programs.

Rick Shipp, an Aboriginal Team Leader from the Southern NSW Local Health District and Jenni Johnson, Associate Director, Trauma Pain and Rehabilitation, presented the My rehab, my journey – Gadjigadji project to clinicians. A follow-up workshop was held in September to work through the project’s service audit tool. A final session explored engagement with local Aboriginal people around the NSW mid north coast providing examples of successful ways of working.

Feedback has been positive, with clinicians reporting a greater understanding and importance of yarning when interacting with Aboriginal people using brain injury rehabilitation services.
