Culturally safe care
Murrumbidgee LHD is leading a project group created to enhance cultural capability among clinicians to make sure our Aboriginal community, patients and consumers experience safe, respectful care.
Cultural capability refers to the skills, knowledge, behaviours and systems that are required to plan, support, improve and deliver services in a culturally respectful and appropriate manner.
Cultural capability is a development process that must be built in and supported at the system, organisation, professional and individual levels as everyday practice. This is a key element in contributing to improving health outcomes for Aboriginal peoples through the provision of services in a culturally safe and inclusive way.
This Murrumbidgee LHD project group is creating a shared framework, to define the knowledge, skills and practices our clinicians need to perform their duties in a culturally informed way.
Working with project partners helps to influence change across the District and builds positive skill sets and behavioural changes for all clinicians. Key partners on this project are:
- Charles Sturt University
- University of NSW
- University of Notre Dame
- Murrumbidgee Local Health District (Project lead).
The project group have created a list of education resources (PDF 563.42KB) against a shared capability framework that can help build and strengthen the skills and practices. This list of curated education resources is not exhaustive and is current as of April 2022.
