Guuruburra, welcome in the language of the Ngambri People – the First Peoples of the Canberra region. Originally known as Ngambri-Kamberri-Canberra.
CATSINaM has set up the ‘Back to the Fire’  To highlight the importance Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander nurses and midwives bring to the Australian health system, as a safe space for Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander nurses and midwives, including students and allies to network and share experiences as a forum to explore issues and discuss ways to ‘keep the fire burning’ in work, families, communities, and the professions.

“Thank you
 for coming Back to the Fire with CATSINaM”
