dc.description.abstract A partnership model was established among key education providers, policy makers, non-government organisations, the local area health service and Aboriginal community controlled organisations aimed at increasing collaboration, skill development, cultural competence and increasing access to mentorship and expertise for Aboriginal Health Workers (AHWs). A group of 21 AHWs, within two cohorts, undertook the program between October 2005 and June 2006. A mixed-method evaluation using quantitative and qualitative data collection methods was undertaken prospectively. Knowledge and confidence scores significantly increased for all participants over the course duration. Student evaluation demonstrated a desire for group-based activities and the high value placed on clinical visits. Feedback on both outcome and process measures will inform course delivery and design.
