Dr Raglan Maddox, Australian National University, will provide a perspective from North America and the work on cultural safety at St Michael’s Hospital, Toronto.

Dr Ray Mahoney, CSIRO, will talk about the identification of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people who present to hospitals and the implications for their care.

Following the presentations, a Q&A session will be facilitated by AHHA Strategic Programs Director Dr Chris Bourke.

Finally, the potential for expanding the shared care model’s success to support people who have complex comorbidities into the future will be discussed.
