Aboriginal healthworker resource

Bill Genat, Aboriginal healthworkers : primary health care at the margins, University of Western Australia Press, 2006.

The role of the aboriginal healthworker receives scant attention in the literature. This new work, co-written by practising healthworkers, is an excellent exploration of their role, and their problems, frustrations, and successes. Highly Recommended.
