Workforce development and training

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander employees in the health workforce can increase the cultural safety of Indigenous patients because they understand the needs and priorities of Indigenous patients. There are national data available on Indigenous enrolments in health related courses and Indigenous participation in the health workforce. Data on the health workforce and on cultural safety training among non-Indigenous staff are also available from organisations funded to provide Indigenous primary health care and maternal and child health services.
