[Extract] Cultural diversity therefore has become a key characteristic of both countries national identities. It should be noted that there are a number of long-term settled communities in both Australia and New Zealand. The Chinese, for example, have immigrated to both countries since the 1880s. Indian and Pacific communities have been arriving in New Zealand over a considerable period of time. For the purpose of this chapter, however, the focus is on those more recently arrived refugee and migrant communities that are at risk of acute and chronic health problems to a greater extent than the general population, that is, those who lie in poverty, have little education and/or exhibit other characteristics of vulnerable populations in general. The chapter illustrates strategies that community nurses can adopt and utilise when working with these often vulnerable groups.
