Always interesting to try and keep up with publications where cultural safety and cultural security are used.

Cultural safety is cited in: the Network to Eliminate Violence in Relationships (NEVR) from Canada’s only poltechnic university (KPU); in a book chapter from Aotearoa about qualitative study on Māori; from the United States (Florida) in a study about substance use by Native American youth; from Canada about mapping maternal health research landscape in Nunuvat; the prevalence of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) in several First Nations communities in British Columbia, Canada; an Australian commentary on decolinising education; a Canadian article about arthritis; and an Australian narrative review of nursing theories.

The most interesting article to read will be Chontel Gibson’s (Kamilaroi woman) and Lisette Farias article about ‘Deepening our collective understanding of decolonising education‘ – I’ll let you know how that goes! Otherwise, send your comments on these publications to the Cultural Safety & Security Group. #culturalsafety
