Cultural Safety for Health Professionals Portal
In collaboration with the First Peoples Health Unit at Griffith University, the Australian Indigenous HealthInfoNet has developed a new Cultural Safety for Health Professionals portal. The portal aims to support the teaching of health professionals to critically reflect on the concept of cultural safety and to deliver safe, accessible and responsive healthcare that is free from racism.
Links are provided to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health and cultural safety resources, which relate to the five capabilities of a refreshed Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander heath curriculum framework. The portal aims to assist health professionals to support the implementation of the The National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Plan 2013-2023.
