The purpose of this course is to enable students to recognise historical and current inequalities in the health status of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander individuals, families, and groups. Students will learn about culturally safe care to gain a better understanding of how to partner and collaborate to meet health needs and improve health outcomes. Particular interest will be given to, a) the inequities that remain in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health status as compared to their non- Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander counterparts and, b) the skills and knowledge that nurse's need to develop to work with people from both Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures. In undertaking this course the student will utilise the principles of Primary Health Care to propose strategies in collaboration with these individuals, groups or communities to enable them to have equal access to affordable, equitable and appropriate health service provision to meet their needs.
