Sydney: NSW Ombudsman

The Improving service delivery to Aboriginal people with a disability: a review of the implementation of ADHC's Aboriginal Policy Framework and Aboriginal Consultation Strategy, reviews the implementation of Ageing, Disability and Home Care's (ADHC) Aboriginal policy framework and Aboriginal consultation strategy. The Aboriginal policy framework and Aboriginal consultation strategy were released in 2005 as a guide for ADHC's staff to improve service delivery to Indigenous peoples in NSW. The review details the strengths and weaknesses of the framework and strategy currently in place and provides some recommendations for ADHC's staff to strengthen their service delivery.

Indigenous languages and culture in Northern Territory schools: report 2004-2005.

Darwin: Department of Employment Education and Training, Northern Territory Government

This report reviews the impact of the Indigenous languages and culture program on 28 Northern Territory schools and educational institutions, 14 of which were Two Way Learning (Bilingual Education) schools (government and non-government). Responding to the 2003 Two Way Learning Review's recommendation to put culture back on the agenda and to define more precisely the relation between culture and education, the report surveys key stakeholders in urban, rural and remote primary and secondary schools. The report recommends implementing Indigenous language and culture programs in more schools, updating curriculum, expanding resources, and improving the program on a systems level.

Aboriginal cultural security: a background paper.

Perth, WA: Department of Health, Western Australia

Cultural Security requires a shift in emphasis from attitude to behaviour. Cultural Security rejects the view that ensuring respect for and incorporation of Aboriginal cultural rights, values and expectations in health service practice and management is somehow optional or solely the responsibility of individuals. This policy approach acknowledges that society and the system have a role to play in building a culturally secure health service. Cultural Security recognises that a more respectful and responsive health system will contribute to improved outcomes, greater efficiency and improved equity.
