    A Central Australian Remote Health Lecturer is calling for a shift in the power base dynamic between Health Professionals and Aboriginal Clients which, she believes is continuing to impact on the delivery of Health Services.

    Lecturer Kath Martin says that it is important to shift away from the practices of old by “Shifting that Professional Power Stigma.”  Ms. Martin says our health professionals need to listen more to Aboriginal clients about how they would like to receive health treatment.

    The Centre for Remote Health provides a number of short courses and workshops for those new to the delivery of Remote Health. Some of the courses attempt to challenge and address issues that create barriers for people accessing Health Services in the Northern Territory.
