Listen to Professor Gregory Phillips and Karl Briscoe discuss the National Scheme’s Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health and Cultural Safety Strategy 2020-2025.
The Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (Ahpra) has released the latest episode in the Taking care podcast series. In this episode, the inaugural co-Chair of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Strategy Group, Professor Gregory Phillips, and incoming co-Chair Karl Briscoe discuss the importance and relevance of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultural health and safety strategy 2020-2025 (the Strategy) in achieving cultural safety and Closing the Gap.
The Strategy’s vision is that ‘Patient safety for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples is the norm. We recognise that patient safety includes the inextricably linked elements of clinical and cultural safety, and that this link must be defined by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples.’ This will guide the work of the National Scheme and marks an important development in health regulation in Australia.
In this episode we hear how the Strategy came to be, listen to stories of memorable moments in its development and what the future could hold in an environment of increased cultural safety in Australian healthcare. This important conversation also acknowledges the many people and organisations involved in developing and delivering the Strategy.
