Abstract

The aim of this paper was to explore the cancer care experiences of Indigenous people in New South Wales. It used a social inclusion lens to understand how people at the margins of society engage with services proved. The data included information from interviews conducted with 22 Indigenous people with cancer, 18 carers of Indigenous people and 16 health care workers.

The study highlighted three factors which were important influences of social inclusion:

  • socio-economic security
  • trust (or mistrust arising from historic and current experience of discrimination)
  • difficulties in knowing the system of cancer treatment.
