IPEPA Learning Approach

IPEPA training equips the healthcare workforce to deliver culturally-responsive and safe care to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, and their loved ones, who are living with an illness that will shorten the person’s life and lead to death.


IPEPA Learning Approach

IPEPA workshops are delivered by Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander facilitators and grounded in the holistic and healing-informed practices of:

  • Dadirri – deep listening from a place of quiet, still awareness
  • Ganma – respectful, two-way sharing of knowledge that leads to deeper understanding and truth
  • Yarning – free flowing conversation that involves deep listening (dadirri) to storytelling that creates new knowledge (ganma) and understanding in an environment where all participants feel safe and respected.
