National Rural Health Alliance - Key Note Address
Janine Mohamed - how will our history be told?
Embedding cultural safety at all levels of the Australian health system is essential for improving outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander patients and health professionals, and also for other Indigenous people working in health systems. Momentum is building for a wider uptake of cultural safety, thanks to the forthcoming Version 2 of the National Safety and Quality Health Service Standards as well as other moves in the pipeline. However, concerted efforts are needed to ensure these measures have the desired effects, especially for rural and remote communities.
How do we ensure that when history is told about this era, it shows that regulation for cultural safety improved healthcare and health outcomes?
