Capacity Strengthening

 


 

The CREATE capacity strengthening initiative is focused on building the capacity of individuals working within the Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisations (ACCHOs). The program is designed to develop skills in the understanding and undertaking of research.

The CREATE capacity strengthening program:

  • Offers Research Master Classes and an Evaluation Master Class to interested individuals working within the Aboriginal Community Controlled Health sector.  These Master Classes deliver tailored training programs that include:
    • Evaluation – How to gather and analyse data to evaluate services provided for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in the Aboriginal Medical Service setting;
    • Evidence utilisation – How to use evidence based audit to assess and enhance primary health care services provided for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people; and
    • Evidence synthesis – How to gather, appraise and summarise evidence relating to chronic disease prevalence and management for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, and use it to change practice and/or policy.
  • Offers CREATE Fellowships, through the JBI Clinical Fellowship program, which is a six-month work-place, evidence-based, implementation program.  The CREATE Fellowship is offered to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples working within the Aboriginal Community Controlled Health sector.
  • Seminar series, including webinars, co-presented with the Aboriginal health sector.
  • Offers scholarships and research support to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Masters and PhD students conducting research that aligns to CREATE priorities.
