Indigenous voices and perspectives on how to provide positive outcomes in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander healthcare. Burda-burda Balayi Health Professionals and Indigenous Health: Working at the Interface presents a strengths-based focus to help students and practitioners build their understanding of self and others in professional practice to ensure better health outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. The text includes Indigenous and non-Indigenous contexts of history, society and culture, and topics include cultural safety, truth telling, colonialism and shared futures. This book critically examines dominant Western health frameworks that essentialises Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures and health. By providing historical and social context and covering issues affecting public health policy and primary health practice, it aims to diminish conscious bias and racism. With a strong emphasis on research-based Indigenous voices and perspectives, this book provides a culturally safe framework for you to understand the importance of treating Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples effectively and the knowledge needed to do so.
