Why it’s important to identify as an Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander patient

 In Health Information, News and events

Identifying Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander patients is important because it makes a difference to clinical care. Our goal at Blackbutt is to ensure that we are providing quality healthcare to all of our patients. This means we need to understand your background and history in order to provide you with tailored treatment to meet your individual needs.

Check out this great video from the Hunter New England and Central Coast Primary Health Network about why it is important to identify your heritage at your Doctors, and how this can help improve your treatment. For more information and and resources check out their website:
