Summary: Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Peoples’ Health and Wellbeing addresses the need to reorient mainstream health to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples’ ways. It focuses on the philosophy of Indigenous Australian cultural competence, where the onus of responsibility is not on the patient but instead on the clinician. By providing students with the skills of reconciliation, cultural competence and cultural safety it aims to strengthen healthcare delivery and ensure that all Australians have equal and equitable access to healthcare. Taking a multi-disciplinary approach, this book caters to nursing, midwifery and allied health courses. Each chapter is written by an Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander and a non-Indigenous author, representing interprofessional collaboration. Part 1 of the text introduces theoretical and historical concepts that will support your students’ learning, while Part 2 focuses on key health systems and will develop students’ understanding in specific Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples’ health domains. -- publisher website.
