Towards a shared understanding of terms and concepts

Towards a shared understanding of terms and concepts: Strengthening nursing and midwifery care of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

CATSIN has produced this paper to facilitate understanding of words and concepts commonly used – and misused – in relation to working thoughtfully with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples throughout the healthcare sector.  The paper uses original sources, where possible, to assist nurses and midwives through a maze of terms, definitions and frameworks.
