Making a difference in your practice
Implications for your health practicePrejudice, discrimination and racism will interfere with the quality of the relationships you build with your clients, families and communities and can impact on your clinical judgement. Poor judgement translates to poor outcomes for your clients, which undermines the goal of improving healthcare for First Peoples.All clients, families and communities have the right to be treated with cultural respect and understanding.This course raises awareness, corrects misunderstandings and fills in some of the knowledge gaps to help you work in a culturally safe way with our people. Each of us has prejudices and each of us can jump to conclusions. What we invite you to do is question those assumptions, let go of your judgments and commit to providing culturally safe health care for all.
