Abstract

Social workers in health settings with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people must ground their practice on an understanding of the history of colonisation, injustice and oppression for this population. The legacy of significant personal and cultural loss for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people continues to impact their lived experiences today through complex trauma, ongoing barriers to accessing health services and ongoing structural racism in many sectors.
