RAHC Welcomes Dan Dalladay to the Team as a Remote Educator
RAHC welcomes Daniel 'Dan' Dalladay to the team as one of our Remote Educators (REs).
Dan has had an interesting domestic and international career, originally training as a nurse, before continuing study in Philosophy and at one stage even spent time working in the airline industry.
As a nurse, Dan has worked in a number of locations and in a number of specialities. In 1984, Dan began his career working in Calcutta and Rural Bengal in North Eastern India. Since then, Dan has worked in a range of other fields, including coronary care, ICU, emergency and psychiatric nursing.
Dan first joined RAHC as a health professional in 2009 and quickly realised he had found his calling. Dan was drawn to the ancient spirituality of Indigenous culture and the vastness and beauty of the landscapes where he worked on his placements.
Three years later, Dan felt so strongly that he needed to focus on Indigenous health that he left his urban job in mental health and addiction nursing to focus solely on working remote on placements.
Dan finds remote nursing with RAHC extremely rewarding. It has given him the opportunity to draw from a wide range of skills developed throughout his domestic and international career.
"The challenges are unique and working with Indigenous people in remote is by far the most rewarding work I have ever done."
"To me remote nursing among Indigenous people is a privilege."
Dan enjoys the Remote Educator role because “…it brings out my nurturing side, and watching new-to-remote health professionals develop and blossom is so rewarding."
