Summary
The "Framework" focuses on addressing health workforce skill gaps as well as supporting the economic and social well being of Aboriginal people. The key priorities of the Framework are to:
• Increase the representation of Aboriginal employees to 2.6% across NSW Health;
• Increase the representation of Aboriginal people working in all health professions;
• Develop partnerships between the health and education sectors to deliver real change for Aboriginal people wanting to enter the health workforce and improve career pathways for existing Aboriginal staff;
• Provide leadership and planning in Aboriginal workforce development;
• Provide employment to Aboriginal university graduates in health professions; and
• Build a NSW health workforce which closes the gap in health outcomes between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people by providing culturally safe and competent health services.

This policy was updated on 12/8/2011, the only change is to the term 'other public health organisations' where it appeared now reads 'other NSW Health organisations'.
