$59.05

Indigenous Australian Health and Cultures : An introduction for health professionals is written by a diverse group of health professionals, the majority of whom are Indigenous Australians. A life cycle approach has been adopted, with chapters focusing on pregnancy and birthing through to the care and responsibilities of the elderly. These are bookended by the first chapter on Culture, History and Health which contextualises the subsequent content and the final chapter on future directions following the National Apology.
