Abstract

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health workers are key providers of primary health services to Aboriginal communities, especially in remote and rural areas. Their roles often involve them being overloaded with competing demands. Despite all of this there has been limited attention given to the maintenance and ongoing enhancement of their skills and knowledge following the completion of formal training. A culturally appropriate interactive multimedia self-paced health program as a mechanism to improve the accessibility and the use of scientific data and information for health purposes was proposed as a basic method for better supporting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander primary health care workers in their practice locations. This study involved four phases: program needs assessment, identification of the key factors that should be considered in developing the CD-Rom, model development, and formative evaluation for the model. This paper is a case description for the third phase of the study: the development of a culturally appropriate interactive multimedia health informatics CD-Rom for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health workers.
