Congress of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Nurses (2013)

Towards a shared understanding of terms and concepts: strengthening nursing and midwifery care of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

Canberra: Congress of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Nurses

This publication provides explanations of a range of words and concepts to help nurses and midwives adhere to the Code of ethics for nurses in Australia and the Code of ethics for midwives in Australia as they relate specifically to the provision of nursing and midwifery care to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and communities.

The words explained include concepts that describe knowledge and concepts that act as frameworks for policies and practices:

  • culture
  • cultural awareness and cultural sensitivity
  • cultural knowledge
  • cultural safety
  • cultural respect
  • cultural security
  • cultural responsiveness
  • cultural competence

While this publication focuses on the relationship between the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander person and the non-Indigenous nurse and midwife, it could be useful within the broader health care industry.
