Good clinical placements guide

Recruitment and retention

Project Overview

The Congress of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Nurses and Midwives (CATSINaM) has developed the Good Clinical Placement Guide: a guide for universities and health services to create culturally safe clinical placements for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Nursing and Midwifery students to:

  • Support universities’ to better prepare Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander nursing and midwifery students for their clinical placements
  • Support clinical placement coordinators to better prepare workplaces for hosting Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander nursing and midwifery students on clinical placements
  • Assist higher education providers and workplaces to consider and address the complexities faced by Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander nursing and midwifery students when entering clinical placements.

secondary purpose of the guide is to prepare non-Indigenous nursing and midwifery students for placements in Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander health contexts.

This resource is intended to be complimentary to other resources that higher education nursing and midwifery programs and host workplaces already use on preparing for and supporting clinical placements.
