Orange Shirt Day: Cultural Safety

September 30th is Orange Shirt Day

What is cultural safety or cultural competency?

"Cultural safety within an Indigenous context means that the educator/practitioner/professional, whether Indigenous or not, can communicate competently with a patient in that patient‘s social, political, linguistic, economic, and spiritual realm." (NAHO, 2008, p.4).
