Choose a group that interests you from the diversity of ethnicities, religions, genders, sexualities and abilities in the Australian population.
Your reflection is a response to the question:
How can I provide culturally safe health care to patients who belong to my chosen diverse group?
There are four required components to your reflection:
1.Identify some of the barriers to health care access and good care experienced by your chosen group.
2.Reflect on your attitudes, values and beliefs about your chosen group, and assess the impact (both positive and negative) of your attitudes on your anticipated health care practice with your chosen group.
3.Describe some culturally safe health care practices you might undertake with individual patients who belong to your chosen group.
4.Outline how you could be a nurse or health service provider advocate for your chosen group and contribute towards improved health outcomes for your chosen group at a population level.
