Synopsis

The remarkable life of Isabel Flick, a leading Aboriginal community activist, is portrayed in this work. Her story, as told to one of Australia's leading experts on Aboriginal history, paints a picture of the experience of Aboriginal people in Australia during the 20th century and of race relations in its rural towns. Flick's life, from her childhood in a small town in New South Wales to her work fighting for reform in education and healthcare, is explored in inspirational detail. Her accomplishments, including the laying of groundwork for the unrest preceding Australia's Freedom Ride in 1965 and her work with the union movement are detailed, culminating in her 1991 nomination as town spokesperson for a small town in New South Wales with a long history of racism. Flick's is a story of determination and success in the face of cultural barriers.

Health professionals spend many hours (sometimes as much as 20 per cent) of their working day writing. This writing, largely undertaken for reasons of day-to-day professional communication, may take the form of responding to emails, compiling client case histories, annotating progress notes, writing letters and preparing various reports on a range of work-related matters. Some health professionals may also spend many hours writing outside of their usual work time, including writing entries in a reflective practice journal, composing an essay to meet the assessment requirements of a university course or preparing a presentation for a staff development seminar.
