Which Way? Educating for nursing Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples

Fredericks, Bronwyn (2006) Which Way? Educating for nursing Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. Contemporary Nurse, 23(1), pp. 87-99.


Cross-Cultural Awareness Training has been seen as a way to improve nurses' knowledge and understanding of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and to therefore improve service delivery and therapeutic care to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. Nurses may have undertaken this type of training in their workplace or as part of nurse education in an undergraduate degree program. In asking Which Way in regards to this type of training and education, this paper includes the views of a selection of Aboriginal women and highlights the need to extend beyond Cross-Cultural Awareness Training to Anti-Racism Training. Furthermore, that Anti-Racism Training and addressing white race privilege is required in order to address the inequities within the health system, the marginalisation and disempowerment of Indigenous peoples.
