Emphasises importance of developing best practice solutions to nursing issues, guided by more evidence-based, peer-reviewed research. Highlights need for respect of the health of nurses, who are becoming more scarce in, and yet are bearing more responsibility as primary care givers for ensuring and improving the health of, Aboriginal communities.
