From Cultural Brokers to Shared Care: The Changing Position of Literacy for Aboriginal Health Workers in Central Australia.
Willis, Eileen
Studies in Continuing Education, v21 n2 p163-75 Nov 1999
Use of aboriginal health workers in rural Australia has varied according to the interests of governments, indigenous groups, the medical field, and the workers. These interest groups have positioned workers as cultural brokers, primary health workers, community developers, and professionals in shared care. The question of English literacy has not been adequately addressed. (Contains 39 references.) (SK)
