Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Peoples' Health prepares nursing and allied health students for health care practice among Indigenous Australian communities and encourages best clinical practice and skill development. With its focus on cultural competence, community and cultural safety, the text examines theoretical concepts and specific health domains, and provides valued insight into the skills required of health professionals. The text advances the strengths-based approach by highlighting the strengths in communities and health, rather than the deficiencies. The experiences and expert knowledge of the author team are combined with a diverse range of case examples to equip students with an understanding of cultural competencies and to prepare them for the diverse and alternative approaches to health care they will need to adopt when working with Indigenous Australians and community groups.
