Cultural Capability

Queensland Health Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Cultural Capability Framework 2010-2033

The health and wellbeing of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people is influenced by many socio-economic, environmental and socio-political factors. Improving health and life expectancy of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people requires many of these factors to be addressed. 

Improvements also require access to healthcare that is both clinically effective and culturally responsive to enable Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to fully participate. The Queensland Health Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Cultural Capability Framework 2010-2033 provides guidance for health services to understand and achieve the long-term changes needed to provide culturally safe, effective healthcare.
