Get Expert's Help on Report – First Peoples Health and Culture

Assessment Task

Identify a current health issue that impacts Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander peoples and examine the many factors that influence the health issue from a cultural awareness and cultural safety perspective.

Please refer to the Instructions for details on how to complete this task.

Context

Improving the health status of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in Australia is a longstanding challenge for health services and governments in Australia. While there have been improvements on some measures of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health status, they have not matched the rapid health gains made in the general population in Australia. The inequality in health status experienced by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples is linked to systemic discrimination. This has been identified as a human rights concern by United Nations committees; and acknowledged as such by Australian governments.

You will gain skills in producing an informative and engaging report, improve your ability to effectively and accurately communicate information, increase your knowledge and understanding of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health and improve your academic skills.

This assessment will advance your evidence evaluation, critical analysis and report writing skills which may be transferable to report writing and delivery in the professional context. Designing and delivering reports also develops competency in advocacy for health problems.

Instructions

  1. Identify one health issue that impacts Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander
  2. Write a 1500-word report discussing and critically analysing the factors that influence the chosen health issue from a perspective of cultural awareness and cultural safety.
  3. The report should answer the following questions:
    • the historical perspective
    • why it is an issue?
    • extent/magnitude of the issue
    • is it a universal issue or geographically limited?
    • What are the contributing factors (e.g. stereotyping and racial attitudes) to the particular health issue?
  4. You are also expected to discuss contemporary evidence-based strategies being used to address chosen health issue and whether the health outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are improving or not.
  5. The report should adhere to the structure guidelines provided in the attached FPH201 Assessment 2 Report Structure.pdf.
  6. You are strongly advised to read the rubric which is an evaluation guide with criteria for grading your assignment – this will give you a clear picture of what a successful report looks

It is essential that you use appropriate APA style for citing and referencing research. Please see more information on referencing in the Academic Skills webpage.
