In this unit, you will have the opportunity to identify historical and current inequalities in the health status of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander individuals, families, and groups. You 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. Focus will be given to the inequities that continue in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health status compared to their non-Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander counterparts. You will develop the knowledge and skills needed to work with people from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures. In this unit, you will propose ways of collaborating with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander individuals, groups or communities to facilitate equal access to equitable and appropriate health services.
