Communication Guidelines for Engaging
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Professionals
The PEPA Communication Guidelines have been developed to provide guidance for individuals and organisations involved in the implementation and evaluation of PEPA and to enable them to work within local cultural practices and protocols.
The PEPA Communication Guidelines are underpinned by the principles of a Cultural Respect Framework for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health 2004-2009*.
Local artwork has been added for the covers of the Northern Territory and Victorian guides but the content is identical to the national Communication Guidelines.
