This topic is designed to enhance students' understanding of Indigenous Australian health. The topic will examine how Indigenous health is currently addressed within the Australian health care system, and what is required for more-effective health practice, with the opportunity for students to contextualise their personal and professional understanding of health and illness within an Indigenous health context. Students will develop an understanding of the cultural and social determinants of health, as well as a rights- and strengths-based understanding of health and wellbeing.
This topic aims to assist students to develop a better understanding of the diversity of Indigenous health, as well as to lay the foundations for becoming a Culturally Safe heath practitioner. This Topic will assist Health Sciences students to develop as effective, holistic practitioners, who are also advocates for best practice for the health and well-being of Indigenous peoples.
