Indigenous Australians experience poorer health than non- Indigenous Australians. Achieving change through stopping smoking, improving nutrition and increasing physical activity would significantly improve health outcomes.
In 2017, the QLD Government engaged Menzies to develop and deliver a brief health intervention training program to Indigenous community health and hospital workers across the state.
From 2017-2019, our team will deliver training to more than a thousand people in the culturally-appropriate B.strong program.
The program includes a one-day face-to-face workshop, six online modules and practitioner and client resource kits.
The materials have been designed to increase knowledge and skills and provide tools to assist with delivery of brief interventions to promote healthy changes with Indigenous clients.
