Abstract

This presentation will explore the concept of cultural safety and its recent endorsement by the Australian Nursing and Midwifery Council, within the National Competency Standards for the Midwife. Discussion will focus on the impact of colonisation on the Australian Indigenous population and outline the subsequent implications for midwifery practice. This discussion will be illuminated by data from a study that explored how midwives currently incorporate cultural sensitivity into their practice.
