Early in 2023, AHCSA was awarded grant funding which has enabled reviewing and revitalising AMIC training. This prompted the convening of an AMIC Resource Writing Group in August 2023.
The writing group consists of industry experts to provide contemporary and accurate updating of information about maternity care for Aboriginal women. This group has been meeting fortnightly for the last few months to update the resources and address the changes in the competency units for the course.
The AMIC Resource Writing Lead, Lisa Catt, said: “We are so privileged to have the expertise of these women to assist in this project. They have unique knowledge and skill set that can create an excellent training package for AMIC Specialisation, which is unique to South Australia.”
The group has had consultation with Deanna Stuart-Butler who assisted with the first training package 16 years ago, and was in the first student cohort. She is now the Senior Advisor of Indigenous Research and Honorary Fellow at University of Queensland including their Chairperson for Indigenous Advisory Group. Also consulting for this package is Tennelle Richards who has been working for AHCSA for the last few years in Project roles and is currently the Senior Project Officer Child and Maternal Continuity of Care Project.
