CommDoc app looks to translate community consultations
Regional training provider Northern Territory General Practice Education (NTGPE) has developed an app that translates common terms used in medical consultations into 16 different Aboriginal languages spoken in the NT.
Aimed at GP registrars and other health professionals working in Aboriginal communities, CommDoc provides audio translations of terms and phrases categorised into four major sections: common terms (such as 'hello' and 'good'), patient history, examination and body parts.
The NTGPE behind the app are also working on text as well as audio translations for the terms and phrases.
CommDoc has been developed by NTGPE in consultation with clinics, communities, doctors, cultural educators and interpretive services.
