Five things you need to know about our eLearning modules

The nature of working in remote locations in the Northern Territory means that patients may present with different symptoms than in urban-based locations. We created these modules to increase awareness about Indigenous health and educate those who are preparing to work, or interested in working in Indigenous communities.
