Description

Health Professionals and Indigenous Health: Working at the Interface provides a strengths-based focus on how to build both an understanding of self and professional practice, as well as Indigenous and non-Indigenous history, society and culture in future health professionals. It covers themes of cultural safety, truth-telling, colonialism and shared futures, promoting effective health outcomes for both Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and non-Indigenous people.

This book challenges the paradigm that essentialises Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures and health by critically examining dominant Western health frameworks. By providing historical and social context and covering issues affecting public health policy and primary health practice, it aims to diminish conscious bias and racism.
