NSB202 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples' Well-being

This unit is positioned in the developing stage of the course and within the professional practice stream. An understanding of the social determinants of health and the impact of historical and contemporary policy and practice influencing the health and wellness of Aboriginal peoples and Torres Strait Islanders is essential to providing health care with these populations. A multitude of terms and concepts are used in this context. This unit emphasises cultural safety as the preferred model to contemporary health care delivery in Australia. It promotes the position of the contemporary health practitioner as a fundamental member of the partnership, and necessary to enhancing Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health and well-being. Importantly, it values the pivotal role of Aboriginal peoples and Torres Strait Islander peoples' self-determination in leading this partnership.
