A Health Workforce to Address Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health

 

Overview

A Health Workforce to Address Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health is an initiative of The Lowitja Institute. A key principle underpinning this program is that the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health workforce has a key role to play in Closing the gap in health outcomes by making services more culturally appropriate and accessible by bringing a unique understanding to health delivery for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

The program aims to:

  • develop knowledge, tools and resources that will enable end-users (policymakers, health services and community) to enhance the capability of the health workforce to be effective in the delivery of all aspects of health care for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people
  • develop knowledge, tools and resources that will enable end-users (policymakers, health services and community) to provide culturally competent and safe working environments that facilitate entry and career pathways for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in the health and health research workforce
  • build and strengthen the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health research workforce.

There is a program committee who oversee the program implementation.
