Undertaking the surveys

Your University has been allocated a single and unique log in. You can share this log in with staff members who will be contributing to the survey/s. Those involved could include members of staff responsible for teaching and/or administering Indigenous health, the Head of the Medical Education Unit from your school and other engaged staff members. Please note that only one of each of the Review and Mapping Tools should be created at one time. Contributors are identified when they insert their name into the 'Completed by' box at the end of each question. When the Review and Mapping Tools are undertaken over consecutive years, the school's progress can be mapped and compared.

When completing the surveys please answer the questions only in relation to the past year's activities. This will ensure that you capture initaitives appropriately.

Periodic Systemic Review of Indigenous Health Initiatives

Purpose

To provide medical schools with a tool to review their response to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health initiatives against the Standards for Assessment and Accreditation of Medical Schools by the Australian Medical Council 2012. To assist with addressing the detail of the Standards, the 'Notes' from the Assessment and Accreditation of Medical Schools: Standards and Procedures 2010 have also been included. The reference to the relevant Standard and/or Note is detailed on each page.

When to use this tool

What it will provide

  • Identification of current strengths in relation to the AMC Standards
  • Identification of areas for improvement to align with AMC Standards
  • The opportunity to review your schools responsiveness to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health initiatives over time

Each Section of the survey is related to a Standard and its associated 'Notes' in which Indigenous health is stated as an issue for consideration. There are multiple tabs / questions to be completed as part of each Section or StandardĀ that you will see on the top left of your screen. Once you have completed all of the tabs, move to the next section by using the 'Next' button. The Review can be saved at any point in time to be completed at a later date. Once all the questions have been answered, and the survey has been submitted, however, the Tool can no longer be amended.
