Abstract: Attitudinal changes of medical and nursing staff will change the status quo of Aboriginal health, and changing antiquated images of a past era is a step in the right direction. We can alter the negativity associated with Aboriginal people and their cultures by recognising their unique value to Australia’s past, present and future. If implementing and maintaining cultural safety for Aboriginal people means improving their wellbeing and survival, then it should be compulsory in all spheres of health practice in this country.
