About POCHE Northern Territory
The Poche Centre for Indigenous Health and Well-Being in the Northern Territory (Alice Springs and Darwin) is led by Professor Dennis McDermott. It is a sister centre to the Poche Centre for Indigenous Health and Well-Being, Adelaide.The vision of Poche Northern Territory is to contribute to the improved health outcomes of Aboriginal people in remote communities of the Northern Territory, through conducting high quality research, education, and training. The Poche Centre achieves this vision in partnership with Aboriginal communities. Poche Northern Territory builds on Flinders University’s existing strengths in Central and Northern Australia and works to increase the number of Indigenous students studying medicine, nursing and other health profession courses, further develop the skills of the non-Indigenous health workforce, lead research into Indigenous health related behaviour, and improve training in cross-cultural communication skills.
