  • CULTURAL SAFETY IN PRACTICE

    Health Care and Indigenous Australians: Cultural safety in practice, now in a fully updated second edition, is an award winning text that offers a comprehensive framework for creating a culturally safe environment and enhancing health outcomes for Indigenous Australians. The material covered has evolved from decades of working closely with Indigenous health workers, academics and communities, and teaching Indigenous health to undergraduate students. 

    The approach taken in this book has been endorsed by the Australian Nursing and Midwifery Accreditation Council and the Royal College of Nursing as a means to provide stand-alone subjects on Indigenous health in nursing curricula. This approach is also useful and beneficial to students and professionals from a wide range of other health disciplines.

    Through case studies, discussions, reflections and critiques of health issues in Australia today, Health Care and Indigenous Australians offers a starting point for learning about cultural safety in an Indigenous health context, and is essential for students, academics and practitioners alike.

    Key features: 
    • Fully updated second edition of an award winning text
    • The text serves to meet the aims of the Australian Nursing and Midwifery Council and the Royal College of Nursing to provide compulsory subjects on Indigenous health in nursing curricula
    • Takes the approach of cultural safety as endorsed by the Congress of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Nurses (CATSIN)
    • Materials used are both culturally and locally appropriate 
    • While this texts primary audience is those involved in the nursing curriculum, it aims to meet the needs of a range of health disciplines
