Thank you

This podcast is so excellent. I’m about to start working at RDH, and I’m so excited to learn about aboriginal culture. This podcast has given me some really excellent strategies to communicate with my patients.

Should be mandatory listening esp. in the Northern Territory

I wish we had a version for professionals in every industry and for everyone engaging with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures. So much to think about. So well explained. Easy to listen to. The specialists have been very open in answering the questions so we can all learn.

Excellent Podcast

Thank you Vicki and co for putting this together. It’s such a valuable tool for us for everyday work. And it’s such small things we can learn and change in our practice that will make a world of difference to our patients.
