Healthcare Workforce

Healthcare generates some of the highest carbon emissions in the world, with Australia’s healthcare sector being responsible for 7% of the country’s total carbon footprint. Monash researchers from School of Nursing and Midwifery and Monash Sustainable Development Institute developed an education program to help embed Indigenous knowledges and voices to teach the next generation of healthcare workers more about sustainable healthcare as a means of addressing the climate impact of the sector.
