An Aboriginal Cultural Safety & Security Framework

Improving Aboriginal health outcomes through culturally safe and secure mainstream healthcare governance and practice

This Report is the outcome of first stage of the project An Aboriginal Cultural Safety and Security Framework sponsored in 2016 by the Mid North Coast Aboriginal Health Authority and funded by the Mid North Coast Local Health District.

The Aboriginal Cultural Safety and Security Framework was based on the need to improve healthcare organisational context so that Aboriginal people feel safe and secure when accessing and using mainstream health services.

The Report was led, developed, managed, contributed to, and produced by Aboriginal people – it reflects their cultural voices. Non-Aboriginal people have played a vital role at all stages of the project and so the Report reflects a genuine co-design process.
