This series of videos has been developed to support clinicians who are caring for Aboriginal people with chronic kidney disease.
The videos aim to:
- provide education on chronic kidney disease
- empower Aboriginal community members
- enhance the cultural capability of health staff.
Aunty Liz shares her lived experience with chronic kidney disease. She explains the healthcare-related experiences of Aboriginal people, including her journey of racism, mistrust, empowerment and taking back control .
This has been a collaborative partnership between South Western Sydney Local Health District, and the Renal and Aboriginal Chronic Conditions Networks at the ACI.
Thank you to all involved, and especially Aunty Liz and her family for having the courage to share your story and inspire our diverse Aboriginal peoples across NSW and aboard.
