First Nations and Inuit women and infants face challenging health issues in their communities where there are environmental risks. Literature examining these contexts and the processes through which health is affected is relatively limited. The objective of this review is to examine and consolidate the available literature on environmental threats to First Nations and Inuit maternal health in order to identify priorities for future research.

The past two decades have seen an incrementally steady development in maternal and
infant health programming targeted to Aboriginal communities. This paper reviewed
existing maternal and infant health programs and guidelines as administered under
the First Nations and Inuit Health Branch. While the aim here is help assess the extent
to which populations may be under-served or un-served by current Aboriginal
maternal and infant programming, it is by no means intended to discredit the efforts
of FNIHB, but simply to highlight where further spending could lead to better health
outcomes for a greater number of people.

Identifies nursing workplaces issues in Aboriginal communities, focussing on issues characterised as common and persistent within the national scope. Examines these issues and associated best practices solutions under 5 categories: leadership; partnerships; resource adequacy for client services; information management; and, human resources. Notes importance of community leaders' developing communication; surmises that, while communication was not identified as an issue, it is an underlying factor behind most workplace issues. 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.
