Aboriginal people who have a long stay in hospital following trauma, or a medical episode, face some unique challenges.

My rehab, my journey – Gadjigadji supports clinicians and health staff to create a culturally safe environment for Aboriginal people. The website provides information, case studies and videos that raise awareness of the challenges Aboriginal people face. Practical tools and resources help health workers assess their own knowledge of the issues and implement positive change across health services.

The resources have been developed with the Aboriginal community and health workers for use in rehabilitation wards and can be used in other areas of healthcare.

Please use the communication toolkit assets below to inform clinicians, health professionals and Aboriginal liaison officers about the resources and how they can be used to create a culturally safe environment for Aboriginal people.

Create a culturally safe environment for Aboriginal people

Aboriginal people who have a long stay in hospital following trauma, or a medical episode, face unique challenges. The new My rehab, my journey – Gadjigadji website provides information and practical resources to help clinicians and health staff create a culturally safe environment for Aboriginal people.

The resources can be used by rehabilitation services and in other areas of healthcare.

Services that have trialled the resources say their communication and relationships with Aboriginal patients have improved through important activities, such as yarning and using outdoor spaces. These types of individual or service-wide changes can help Aboriginal people stay engaged with health services, and ultimately improve a person’s experience and health outcomes.

How to get started

The resources have been developed by the Agency for Clinical Innovation (ACI) in partnership with Aboriginal clinicians and community.

Explore all the resources on the My rehab, my journey – Gadjigadji website.
