News: Cultural safety matters – The conversation we need to keep having
9 April 2018
APNA’s president Karen Booth says, 'APNA wants to reiterate their support for Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia’s code of conduct. The code has included extensive consultation across nursing and midwifery, and provides care that is holistic, free of bias and racism, and most importantly respectful of cultural safety for all cultures.'
In an article from Janine Mohamed, CEO of Congress of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Nurses and Midwives (CATSINaM), she comments on the media coverage of the new code of conduct for nurses and midwives under the NMBA including the significance of the codes, CATSINaM's contribution, and the importance of cultural safety.
'I am really proud of these new codes, and not only because the CATSINaM contributed to their development, which included extensive consultation across nursing and midwifery and at the time no one opposed the inclusion of cultural safety.'
