My journey into Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health

Australian Family Physician
Volume 43 Issue 1/2 (Jan/Feb 2014)

Abstract: Although all Australian healthcare providers are acutely aware of the health outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, many general practitioners may feel unprepared to take on the challenge of working in an Aboriginal medical service or in a remote Indigenous community. To highlight the immense rewards, without minimising the challenges, AFP invited Dr Lara Wieland, a GP with longstanding experience in the front-line of providing primary care for Aboriginal peoples, to share her thoughts.
