Cultural Safety in Aotearoa New Zealand

Author(s): Dianne Wepa (ed)

NZ Non Fiction

In Cultural Safety in Aotearoa New Zealand, editor Dianne Wepa has brought together the expertise of a range of experienced educators who are active in cultural safety education, research and practice, and has created a text that will be a valuable resource for students, tutors, managers, policy analysts and others involved in the delivery of health care. Cultural safety is a New Zealand term unique to nursing education. It was born from the Maori experience of poor health care and evolved over twelve years against a backdrop of bicultural development. The Treaty of Waitangi provides the framework for its progression, which emphasises shifting power in the health care arena from nurses and midwives to those receiving care. Once this transfer of power has occurred, the recipients of care are empowered to define what culturally safe practice is. To set the scene, Cultural Safety in Aotearoa New Zealand begins with an historical overview of kawa whakaruruhau/cultural safety. This is followed by a theoretical section and an explanation of the founding principles of cultural safety. The focus of the text then moves to the application of cultural safety in practice. Each chapter in the third part of the book offers ways of working with a wide variety of people. Features Key terms and concepts are highlighted at the beginning of each chapter.
