The National Association of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Workers and Practitioners (NAATSIHWP) is an association founded on the cultural and spiritual teachings of our leaders past and present.

We know that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Workers and Practitioners play a central role in the provision of culturally safe and comprehensive primary health care to our mob. We understand that to be healthy and strong we must be at the centre of all decisions that affect us. 2020 marks the beginning of a new decade and as we work to create a new future we must unite to ensure that our health is also firmly in our hands.

Our day long forums offer an opportunity for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Workers, Health Practitioners and other interested health sector staff to come together to discuss regional priorities, develop new skills and network with key health stakeholders.The forum sessions build the capacity and skills of our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Workers and Health Practitioners to deliver health care, helping to close the gaps in health disparities in their communities. Please look at our calendar of events and register your interest in attending a session. These forums count as Continuous Professional Development (CPD) hours for health professionals.

If you wish to register for these forums go to   https://www.natsihwa.org.au/.
