In today's episode I speak with Professor Roianne West. Roianne has recently undertaken her new role as the CEO of the Congress of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Nurses and Midwives (CATSINaM). Roianne has spent the last 25 years of her nursing career advocating for the health and inclusion of First Nation Peoples. Roianne was recently announced as the Winner of the 2020 Lowitja Insitute Cranala Award for Outstanding Leadership. Whilst at Griffith University Roianne has become Australia'a first Professor of Indigenous Health, the Foundation Chair of First Peoples Health, the Director of the First Peoples Health Unit and the Inaugural Dean of First Peoples Health. In this episode it was a pleasure to learn of Roianne's entry into nursing including her family's deep roots with the profession. Roianne goes into detail of some of the challenges that First Nation Peoples face regarding health care and some of the opportunities nurses and midwives have to make a meaningful impact of their care.
