“Understand the need for equality in patient safety for Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander People”
The cultural safety of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander patients cannot be improved in isolation from the provision of health care, but the extent to which Australian health care systems and providers are aware of and responsive to Indigenous Australians’ perspectives. Some of the aspects of the provision of culturally safe health care include organisational commitments to provide culturally safe care, applicable communication and services, Indigenous workforce development and training, client and community response and collaboration with indigenous organisations.
In this session, you will:
- Understand the need for equality in patient safety for Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander People
- Learn how clinical and cultural safety are linked and defined by Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander People
- Identify what the role of the National Scheme’s strategy is in patient safety for Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander People
- Engage in reflective thinking on how you can influence patient safety through culturally safe healthcare
