This Framework is designed to help identify and document the scope of practice of an individual Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander Health Worker and/or an Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander Health Practitioner.

It is a guide and does not define exactly what each health worker or health practitioner can do as the range of care provided by this group of professionals is very broad. The main aim of the document is to enable Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander Health Workers and Health Practitioners to use their full range of skills so that they, their colleagues and the people they care for are safe.

The Framework commenced as a building block from the recommendations of the Growing our future: the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Worker Final Report in December 2011 and is the result of contributions from a range of stakeholders across Australia.
