Welcome

  (The E4E logo - Wellbeing by Helen Milroy)

Indigenous people in Canada, Australia and New Zealand experience a greater burden of chronic diseases such as diabetes, heart disease and mental illness than non-Indigenous people. Indigenous patients tend to receive poorer quality health care than non-Indigenous people, partly due to "health professional factors", such as clinical decision making, communication and engagement with patients and families.

Currently little is known about how educational approaches influence the health professional factors which contribute to poor outcomes in Indigenous health, or about what approaches work best. The Educating for Equity project will help contribute to improving health professionals' knowledge, attitudes and behaviours, plus share experiences and approaches to Indigenous health teaching and learning in the area of chronic disease.
