Cultural Safety in Healthcare: Past, Present, and Future Perspectives with Simon Brascoupé

May 16 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am


This presentation examines cultural safety, initially championed by Māori nurse Irihapeti Ramsden in the 1990s, and its global dissemination across healthcare systems. It explores its historical evolution, present application, and future prospects, considering spiritual, physical, mental, and emotional dimensions through a Two-Eyed-Seeing approach. From Indigenous knowledge perspectives, it scrutinizes its implications for professional growth, relationships, and future generations. Drawing from Western and Indigenous paradigms, it analyzes humility, the Seven Sacred Teachings, and ethical spaces. The presentation envisions the future of cultural safety, integrating diverse theories through frameworks like Two-Eyed-Seeing, fostering inclusive and collaborative healthcare environments.
