Event description

Description

Northern Territory PHN and Aboriginal Medical Services Alliance Northern Territory (AMSANT) are pleased to invite general practitioners (GPs) to attend the Working from a trauma informed perspective when caring for those at risk of suicide education event. By attending this activity, GPs will be vigilant to the possibility of trauma underlying presentations and diagnoses in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. They will also acquire the skills to recognise, identify, respond and refer appropriately to their patients and improve their health and wellbeing. The key principles of a GPs approach in supporting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples affected by trauma are look, listen, collaborate and coordinate. At the end of these sessions, GPs will know how to look for signs of trauma in patients and know how to respond in a culturally appropriate way. remove double spacing before this sentence GPs can help Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples understand what is happening to them. It is crucial to identify people affected by trauma and intervene early because trauma has serious life-long consequences.
