Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP)

MCCC have committed to an Innovate Reconciliation Action Plan. Some of the initiatives that we have already implemented across the organisation on our journey to reconciliation include:

  • Incorporating the MCCC Aboriginal health logo across our business
  • Increased utilisation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health organisations, e.g. Annual Report, Reconciliation Plan and Cultural Framework document designed and printed by Aboriginal suppliers and Torres Strait Islander catering for workshops
  • Using more culturally appropriate venues for workshops and training for example ACCHOs
  • Developed a RAP Working group to progress initiatives across the business
  • Encouraged staff to attend local events such as NAIDOC week celebrations and art galleries displaying local Aboriginal art
  • Ensured the Aboriginal health training posts are part of the ‘priority match’
  • Implemented online cultural awareness training for staff, with modules developed by Robynne Nelson of Mulana Kaalinya.

 

“Our Reconciliation Action Plan looks to support, guide and hold our organisation to account, as we fulfil our role in working towards reconciliation with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.” said Greg McMeel, CEO

We are also proud to present our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health and Education Framework, supporting the key themes and strategic outcomes of our RAP.

The Framework outlines our vision for Aboriginal health and wellbeing, including:

  • Equal rights and equal opportunities to that of all other Australians including equal access to culturally safe health services
  • Higher social and emotional well-being
  • A workforce/organisational culture built on respect, trust, culturally safe and appropriate care and holistic services in the healthcare setting
  • An educated and culturally aware workforce including the availability of Aboriginal Cultural Mentors and Cultural Educators to support this
  • Building our connections, communication and opportunities for yarning with traditional owners, Elders, ACCHOs and communities so that we
    may learn, grow and work together for our shared goals, developing and strengthening mutually beneficial partnerships.
