The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health curriculum framework (the Framework) has been developed to address the variability among all health professions and higher education providers in terms of the nature and extent to which Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander curriculum is being implemented.

The aim of the Framework, which is divided into four sections is to provide a model for higher education providers to successfully implement Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander curricula, with clear learning outcomes and associated capabilities that could be applied widely across tertiary learning contexts.

The Framework contains four sections:

  • background providing context and history for the development of the Framework
  • the elements
  • implementation guidelines
  • accreditation guidelines.
