The National Scheme’s Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health and Cultural Safety Strategy 2020-2025

Presenter Lilliana Levada, Nurse Education Consultant

Lilliana Levada is an experienced clinician with over 35 years of clinical experience in perioperative nursing (instrument, circulatory, anaesthetic, PACU, educator, consultant and manager nursing roles), intensive care nursing, patient flow management, after-hours hospital management and patient safety management.

Lilliana is passionate about nursing research and patient safety and uses this to translate science into practice. In the past, this has led her to become a lead reviewer for ACORN Standards and engage in providing consultancy for healthcare management.

She firmly believes that continuous improvements in nursing practice are paramount, and loves when nurses cause 'revolution' and evolution in healthcare practice.

She is also involved in medical missions donating her time and expertise to those causes.

Course Content

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.
