This course will explore the various aspects of culture and their impact on communities in terms of health care needs and provision. In particular, it will examine in detail the culture of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and how this impacts upon the delivery of health care to these communities. Further, nurses working in communities with a culturally diverse background, need to be able to deliver their care in a culturally safe manner. This course will provide knowledge that will be applied to the practice context to facilitate the professional behaviours needed for culturally safe and appropriate nursing and health care delivery.
