CommDoc is a language tool developed for GP Registrars and other health professionals working in communities across the Northern Territory, to culturally enhance interactions with Aboriginal patients.

The tool provides audio translations of common terms in medical consultation in different Aboriginal languages spoken in the Territory.

Terms and phrases are categorised into four major sections: Common terms, History, Examination and Body parts.

The tool was developed by Northern Territory General Practice Education (NTGPE) in consultation with clinics, communities, doctors, cultural educators and interpretive services.

The map of language groups in the NT has been provided by the Aboriginal Interpreter Service.
