Caring and Community

Caring and Community: stories from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander nurses and midwives celebrates the pivotal contributions of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander nurses and midwives to our health care.

Every opportunity to recognise and honour the significant contribution of nurses and midwives to our health care system is worth taking. Through their dedication, care and guidance, they make a difference each and every day. Yet the work of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander nurses and midwives — so pivotal to Australian health care — is too often unsung. Caring and Community celebrates thousands of years of traditional birthing and healing practice by acknowledging their contributions, and their journeys.
