For Health Professionals

Resources for health professionals

The provision of culturally capable healthcare in Queensland Health is guided by the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Culturally Capability Framework 2010-2033. This is a critical element in closing the health gaps that exist between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Queenslanders and other Queenslanders.

The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Patient care guideline provides general advice to support healthcare staff in delivering safe, clinically and culturally responsive care for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander patients.

Additional resources for health professionals working with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander patients and consumers are provided by topic.
