Baath,Mandeep Kaur,s326412, HSC 230 Assessment 2 Part 1. Cultural safety action plan for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders in health care setting:– Goal: Cultural safety is very important and vital approach in health care that originated in Aotearoa (New Zealand) to address Maori consumer dissatisfaction with health care.cultural safety is an outcome where all people feel safe,respected,free of racism and discrimination.I am currently working as an endorsed enrolled nurse and my main goal is to provide culturally safe environment to all individuals under my care in the health care setting as a nurse.Providing a culturally safe and respectful practice to individulas is not a new thing and its been out there for a long period of time.I will ensure that people from different cultural background can feel safe in my care by respecting their cultural,social and religious beliefs and by providing them privacy and dignity.I will improve my communication skills with the patient so they can understand easily and I will build my trust with my patients. Stratagies to enhance communication and health literacy with Aboriginals and Torres Strait Islanders: When I will communicate with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peopleI will consider their locality and whether they are accessing Government services and information from an urban, regional or remote setting. Peoples who lives in urban areas have access to more services and information, whereas those living in regional areas have government staff to provide information to the community. Those living in remote communities may also have lower English skills.I will always communicate respectfuly with Aboriginal and Torres strait islander ommunities.There is no formula or set rule for interacting with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. General considerations that I will always keep in my mind when communicating with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander audiences include: I will always use clear language –will ensure jargon, acronyms or technical terms are minimised and fully explained. I will keep in my mind that words might have different meanings in different communities Baath,Mandeep Kaur,s326412, HSC 230 Assessment 2 I will use multiple channels to convey my message, which can include face-to-face, letters, television, brochures, posters, talking posters, print media, community radio, videos, websites and social media. I will use a mix of mainstream and Indigenous media channels for general information and Indigenous specific information. I will use culturally specific elements for Indigenous-specific communications, such as language, talent, design and music elements. I will keep in mind that some Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities face lower literacy and numeracy skills.
