gettin em n keepin em

The report ‘gettin em n keepin em’ by the Indigenous Nursing Education Working Group established by OATSIH and the Australian Congress of Deans of Nursing.

This report by the Indigenous Nursing Education Working Group for the Commonwealth focusses on the inclusion of Indigenous health in Nursing curricula and recruitment and retention of Indigenous Nurses in the workforce.

“International experiences show that marked improvements in Indigenous health can be enhanced through using culturally appropriate recruitment, retention and support strategies to increase the involvement of Indigenous People in education programs and health care delivery. In particular Indigenous health professionals placed in the broader health system contribute to improvements in health of themselves, their families and communities. Moreover, overseas experience has also shown that strategies to provide non-Indigenous health professionals with appropriate education about Indigenous issues and health care also contributes positively to the health status of Indigenous People.”
