Pandemic Kindness Movement
Resources for Aboriginal health workers
The resources included in the Pandemic Kindness Movement may be relevant to everyone working in health – including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. However, we acknowledge that some aspects of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health and wellbeing may not be well stratified within Maslow’s hierarchy, nor included within resources designed for a general audience.
For over 20 years, Australian Indigenous HealthInfoNet has provided support to those working in the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health sector by making research and other knowledge readily accessible.
Australian Indigenous HealthInfoNet has collated COVID-19 resources for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health workers and the community. They are available at on the HealthInfoNet website.
The following resources have been most accessed by health workers on HealthInfoNet.
The Aboriginal Health Council of Western Australia COVID-19 response toolkit
The response toolkit for member services was designed to support Aboriginal Medical Services and Aboriginal Community-Controlled Health Organisations to plan for, and respond to an outbreak of COVID-19 in their community.
The National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Worker Association COVID-19 resources for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health professionals
Resources developed to help Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health workers to protect themselves, their families and their communities.
The Aboriginal Health and Medical Research Council of NSW self-care toolkit
The self-care toolkit aims to assist people by providing tips and tricks to stay mentally and physically healthy.
The Pandemic Kindness Movement webpages are created by clinicians across Australia and hosted by the NSW Agency for Clinical Innovation (ACI). Provision of these links and resources does not imply endorsement nor recommendation from the ACI or NSW Health.
