The Roundtable was hosted by the Lowitja Institute in Brisbane on 15 September 2011 and was attended by researchers, policymakers, community controlled health care providers and other Aboriginal representative bodies with an interest in developing a stronger Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander presence in the health workforce. Presentations included the demographics of the existing Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health workforce and current shortfalls; the complexity of health governance and the need to build educational pipelines for future health workers; and, ways of delivering best practice treatment in a culturally respectful environment.
