Health Care and Indigenous Australians Cultural safety in practice
Now in its third edition, this core textbook offers a comprehensive framework for creating a culturally safe environment and enhancing health outcomes for Indigenous Australians. 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.
This is key reading for anyone taking courses on Indigenous health modules in nursing, midwifery and health related courses at undergraduate or postgraduate level, as well practitioners and academics.
‘This is a great introduction to many of the challenging historical and contemporary issues that student and practicing healthcare professionals must be aware of to enable provision of culturally competent and safe care for Indigenous Australians. I recommend it to my students, and for the ones that have it as a prescribed text, I tell them they cannot study in my Unit without it! – Dr Liz Rix, Southern Cross University, Australia
