What is cultural safety?
Cultural safety is about providing quality service that fits within the cultural values and norms of the person accessing the service that may differ from your own and/or the dominant culture.

VACCHO's Aboriginal Cultural Safety training encompasses some of the information that is often included in cultural awareness training. We do, however, build on cultural awareness training and provide practical tips and skills that can be utilised to improve practice and behaviour, which assist in making Aboriginal peoples feel safe. Participants begin to learn how to strengthen relationships with Aboriginal people, communities and organisations so that access is improved.
Participant learning and understanding are enhanced by the personal stories and lived experiences of our facilitators while exploring Aboriginal identities, cultures, and history.

Delivery Mode – Online
This course is a half-day event, delivered online via Zoom.
