It was established in 2009, following the Australian Government’s announcement of funding to strengthen the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health workforce as part of its ‘Closing the Gap’ initiative.

NATSIHWA’s goal is to promote the ongoing recognition of Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander Health Workers and Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander Health Practitioners as a vital and valued component of a strong professional Aboriginal health workforce to obtain better health outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

You will find Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander Health Workers and Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander Health Practitioners working in rural, regional, remote and urban locations.

They are employed largely by the Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Sector, other Aboriginal Medical Services, mainstream and private health services.

NATSIHWA compliments the other discipline-specific Indigenous health bodies such as the Australian Indigenous Doctors Association (AIDA), Indigenous Allied Health Australia (IAHA) and Congress of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Nurses (CATSINaM).

However, NATSIHWA is the ONLY organisation in Australia that has a prime focus on Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander Health Workers and Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander Health Practitioners. Policy development, mentoring and support, education and professional development forums, and media activities are all critical components of the NATSIHWA’s role and responsibilities.

RESEARCH ASSISTANT HEALTH PROMOTION IN INDIGENOUS EYE HEALTH Closes 26 November

Division/Faculty: Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry and Health Sciences
Department/School: Melbourne School of Population and Global Health
Salary: $69,148 – $93,830 (Level A)
Role & Superannuation rate: Academic – 9.5% superannuation

Unlike many illnesses and disabilities, most poor eye health is preventable or treatable.  Although Australian Indigenous people are reported to have the world’s best vision, as a group they have rates of blindness and vision loss at least 10 times higher than mainstream. Much of the poor eye health is due to inappropriate or inadequate health service delivery.

In addition, Australia is the only developed country to still have trachoma and in many outback areas, Indigenous communities have rates of trachoma as high as anywhere in the world.  This blinding, infectious disease disappeared from mainstream Australia 100 years ago but a concerted program to address trachoma in Australia is still to be implemented.

The successful applicant will join a dedicated multi-disciplinary team of researchers working on Indigenous eye health.

You will be based in the Indigenous Eye Health (IEH) Group in the Indigenous Health Equity Unit, Centre for Health Equity in the Melbourne School of Population & Global Health.

As part of a small team, the Research Assistant will support and contribute to the work of IEH developing, implementing and delivering health promotion and social marketing strategies designed to support the Roadmap.  The work will focus on trachoma health promotion and social marketing and will utilise a number of Indigenous sport, art, media and community groups to engage and raise awareness of trachoma elimination and the availability of eye health services. The role requires engaging with children and adults in remote Indigenous communities and with health, education and other partners and sector stakeholders.

This position will enable the Research Assistant to contribute to improvements in Indigenous eye health delivering genuine community outcome and benefit.  This work is of national and international significance, and provides an opportunity to contribute to the systematic implementation of evidence-based sustainable public health strategies using Indigenous eye health as a model.

The IEH is led by Melbourne Laureate Professor, Harold Mitchell Chair of Indigenous Eye Health, Professor Hugh R Taylor AC. The Research Assistant will report directly to the lead of the trachoma team. As a member of the Melbourne School of Population and Global Health’s academic team, the successful candidate will be expected to support the broad ethos of the School and the School’s compliance with University policies and procedures, including environmental health and safety.

IEH strongly encourages applications from Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Australians.

Indigenous Scholarship helps close the gap in leadership and disability support closing Otober 31

” The course is giving me greater knowledge for responding to the needs of our clients with disabilities so we can give our mob the best possible outcomes.”

The scholarship has proved very beneficial to the inaugural recipient, Carroll Towney of Galambila Aboriginal Health Services, who continues to go from strength to strength. 

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people across the country with an interest in disability services are encouraged to apply. Distance is no barrier as UNE is an online university, so anyone with an internet connection can study the course.

This scholarship was borne out of a joint initiative between Growing Potential Limited and the University of New England (UNE) aimed at strengthening Indigenous leadership in the disability sector.

Chief Executive Officer Mr. Otto Henfling said that Growing Potential is dedicated to empowering Indigenous people in all areas of their lives.

With our commitment to Indigenous and allied health services through our Windaan and Growing Early Minds brands, we saw a need to help others build their Indigenous businesses in the NDIS and disability space.

Mr. Henfling said.

“The scholarship is our way of giving back; to help Indigenous people reach their education and leadership goals so they can provide culturally appropriate supports to their own communities.” 

The scholarship will support an Indigenous recipient to study UNE’s Graduate Certificate in NDIS Business Development – the first course of it’s kind.

This two-year, part-time course was developed by UNE in consultation with the disability sector to help organisations adapt to the new NDIS client-centred business model. 

The content is highly relevant to industry and equips students with a deeper understanding and appreciation of the issues affecting the disability sector, in particular, legal processes and obligations applicable to organisational business development priorities in the NDIS.

The scholarship has proved very beneficial to the inaugural recipient, Carroll Towney of Galambila Aboriginal Health Services, who continues to go from strength to strength. 

“The course is giving me greater knowledge for responding to the needs of our clients with disabilities so we can give our mob the best possible outcomes.” Carroll said.

Applications for the 2019 Scholarship close on 31 October 2018. The finalist will be announced at a Scholarship Ceremony to be held in March 2019.

Indigenous Scholarship helps close the gap in leadership and disability support closing Otober 31

” The course is giving me greater knowledge for responding to the needs of our clients with disabilities so we can give our mob the best possible outcomes.”

The scholarship has proved very beneficial to the inaugural recipient, Carroll Towney of Galambila Aboriginal Health Services, who continues to go from strength to strength. 

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people across the country with an interest in disability services are encouraged to apply. Distance is no barrier as UNE is an online university, so anyone with an internet connection can study the course.

This scholarship was borne out of a joint initiative between Growing Potential Limited and the University of New England (UNE) aimed at strengthening Indigenous leadership in the disability sector.

Chief Executive Officer Mr. Otto Henfling said that Growing Potential is dedicated to empowering Indigenous people in all areas of their lives.

With our commitment to Indigenous and allied health services through our Windaan and Growing Early Minds brands, we saw a need to help others build their Indigenous businesses in the NDIS and disability space. 

Mr. Henfling said.

“The scholarship is our way of giving back; to help Indigenous people reach their education and leadership goals so they can provide culturally appropriate supports to their own communities.” 

The scholarship will support an Indigenous recipient to study UNE’s Graduate Certificate in NDIS Business Development – the first course of it’s kind.

This two-year, part-time course was developed by UNE in consultation with the disability sector to help organisations adapt to the new NDIS client-centred business model. 

The content is highly relevant to industry and equips students with a deeper understanding and appreciation of the issues affecting the disability sector, in particular, legal processes and obligations applicable to organisational business development priorities in the NDIS.

The scholarship has proved very beneficial to the inaugural recipient, Carroll Towney of Galambila Aboriginal Health Services, who continues to go from strength to strength. 

“The course is giving me greater knowledge for responding to the needs of our clients with disabilities so we can give our mob the best possible outcomes.” Carroll said.

Applications for the 2019 Scholarship close on 31 October 2018. The finalist will be announced at a Scholarship Ceremony to be held in March 2019.

1.1 : Our tribute to the National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Worker Association (NATSIHWA)

The National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Worker Association (NATSIHWA) is the peak body for Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander Health Workers and Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander Health Practitioners in Australia.

It was established in 2009, following the Australian Government’s announcement of funding to strengthen the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health workforce as part of its ‘Closing the Gap’ initiative.

NATSIHWA’s goal is to promote the ongoing recognition of Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander Health Workers and Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander Health Practitioners as a vital and valued component of a strong professional Aboriginal health workforce to obtain better health outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

You will find Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander Health Workers and Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander Health Practitioners working in rural, regional, remote and urban locations. They are employed largely by the Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Sector, other Aboriginal Medical Services, mainstream and private health services.

NATSIHWA compliments the other discipline-specific Indigenous health bodies such as the Australian Indigenous Doctors Association (AIDA), Indigenous Allied Health Australia (IAHA) and Congress of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Nurses (CATSINaM). However, NATSIHWA is the ONLY organisation in Australia that has a prime focus on Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander Health Workers and Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander Health Practitioners. Policy development, mentoring and support, education and professional development forums, and media activities are all critical components of the NATSIHWA’s role and responsibilities.

NATSIHWA is governed by a Board of nine Directors – one from each State and Territory and one from the Torres Strait Island

Services

Our organisation, through our members’ work, contributes significantly to closing the gap in health outcomes between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians, which is of direct and immediate benefit to Aboriginal communities across Australia and also a significant national priority for Australia. NATSIHWA supports Health Workers and Health Practitioners and their communities through our programs, by:

– Providing tools and resources for Health Workers and Health Practitioners and their services

– Facilitating and delivering professional development opportunities to contribute to their effectiveness in their roles

– Raising awareness in broader Australia public (particularly health sector) and building alliances to address Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health priorities

– Communicating and networking across the Health Sector to bring greater awareness of the effective models of care for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples

– Building networks among Health Workers and Health Practitioners, and other health professions and the broader health sector

– Offering mentoring to develop leadership and capabilities in our members

Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander Health Workers and Health Practitioners work with communities, families, and individuals of all ages. They work autonomously and in teams with other health professionals, including medical doctors, registered nurses and midwives, dentists, psychologists, allied health professionals; and with policy makers, educators and researchers.

They provide a range of health services depending upon the work setting and individual scope of practice. These may include, but are not limited to:

~ clinical services such as:

– assessment and screening of physical health and social emotional wellbeing

– health promotion for risk factors (e.g. tobacco, healthy eating)

– providing health care in line with care plans and/or treatment protocols

– supporting clients in self-management, including the safe use of traditional and Western medications

~ planning, delivering and evaluating population health programs

~ advocating for clients, including interpreting and translating language
