What is it really like to nurse and to be nursed in a remote Aboriginal community? For too long, the potentially harmful effects of inadequate and unsafe nursing practices on Aboriginal clients have been ignored. In a frightening description of aberrant norms of practice, Sounding the Alarm reveals the inadequacies of recruitment for nurses and their lack of relevant preparation for the often-complex health problems occurring among the Aboriginal people.
