Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Curriculum Framework

Good health care outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples require health professionals to be both clinically and culturally capable. Ensuring all health care professionals develop their cultural capabilities before graduating is one way of enhancing health service delivery to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Curriculum Framework has been developed to address the variability amongst all health professions and higher education providers in terms of the nature and extent to which Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander curriculum is being implemented. The aim of the Framework is to provide a model for higher education providers to successfully implement Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander curricula, with clear learning outcomes and associated capabilities that could be applied widely across tertiary learning contexts.
