Changing the News

A toolkit for Aboriginal health staff

This toolkit provides practical advice and effective guidelines for managing media and developing communication strategies.

Mainstream News Media

A toolkit for journalists

The 'Mainstream News Media' toolkit collates real advice collected from Aboriginal health professionals, and aims to guide journalists during the news gathering and reporting process.
 

Background

• Aboriginal health professionals, journalists, and other media specialists participated in an intensive media management and advocacy skills training and mentoring program
• As a result of this training program, Aboriginal participants improved their media management skills and journalists improved their capacity for reporting on Aboriginal health
• Both toolkits stem from this training and mentoring process
