Cultural Safety is an environment that is spiritually, socially, emotionally, and physically safe for people, where there is no denial of identity, of who they are or what they need.
- Cultural safety moves beyond the concept of cultural sensitivity to analyzing power imbalances, institutional discrimination, and colonization.
- Cultural safety requires that service providers become respectful of nationality, culture, age, sex, political and religious belief. This notion is in no contrast to trans-cultural care, which encourages service providers to deliver services irrespective of these aspects.
- Culturally safe care empowers people because it reinforces the idea that each person's knowledge and reality is valid and valuable.
- Cultural safety is a political idea because it attempts to change attitudes about the power relationships between service provider and client.
