Cultural Competence and the Higher Education Sector: Dilemmas, Policies and Practice - Panelist
Cultural Competence and the Higher Education Sector: Dilemmas, Policies and Practice - Conference, 2018 The Review of Australian Higher Education (Bradley, 2008) and the Review of Higher Education Access and Outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander People (Behrendt, 2012) identified the need for tertiary institutions to incorporate Indigenous Knowledges into curriculum to improve educational outcomes for Indigenous Australians and to increase the cultural competency of all students. The overarching theme of this conference, therefore, is cultural competence and its intersection with the higher education sector from multi-disciplinary, inter-disciplinary and Indigenous Knowledges perspectives. The National Centre for Cultural Competence builds knowledge and capacity in cultural competence through engagement and partnerships with universities, communities, industry groups and government.

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?
