This subject aims to develop an understanding of the cultures and historical background for the health and wellbeing of Indigenous Australian peoples living in Australia. This subject will focus on contemporary models of healthcare delivery and wellness. Students will be given the opportunity to explore their own journey to Indigenous Australian cultural competence and nursing behaviours. Consideration will be given to developing culturally competent health care behaviours that increase the capacity of nurse clinicians to work with Indigenous Australian peoples across the lifespan in various health care settings thus leading to a culturally responsive workforce of the future.
