Title of Assessment Assessment 2: Cultural Safety Strategy
Type of Assessment Report
Length 1500 words (+/- 10%)
Cultural safety is about community and individual empowerment to manage one’s own health, wellbeing and social issues. In practice, cultural safety requires health systems and the people within them, to examine their own practices in order to break down the barriers to achieving cultural understanding and responsiveness. This assessment provides an opportunity to communicate your understanding of these principles and set a plan for how cultural safety should be applied in the workplace.
Please watch the Assessment 2 video, which includes some context for the assessment, a message and instruction from an Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander person. You are then to prepare a 1500-word (+/- 10%) report on cultural safety, including a cultural safety strategy.
