Abstract

Helping patients sort out the complexities of life, even if in small steps, can be a source of great satisfaction ABORIGINAL COMMUNITY CONTROLLED health services (ACCHSs) across Australia are supported by predominantly non-Indigenous doctors. As of 2005, there were between eight and ten Indigenous doctors working in ACCHSs. For many non-Indigenous doctors, working in an Aboriginal health service has been a choice to do something different and to try to make a difference. One of us (K S P) moved to Townsville from Sydney. Working for the Townsville AbOriginal and Islanders Health Services (TAlHS) prOvided an opportunity to combine general practice with interests in maternal and child health and clinical research.
