Building Foundations for Indigenous Cultural Competence

Research output: Other contribution to conferencePresentation onlypeer-review


The first nation peoples are substantially disadvantaged by colonialization. This manifests in almost all aspects of the Western perceived quality of life, including health and education. The manner in which education providers develop and apply cultural competence to enhance understanding of the social, historical and cultural determinants of health, and then apply this understanding to adapt and implement practice is important. There is no more important population than our Indigenous people. We explore the challenges and strategies employed at CSU to drive change through education. This model has direct application to Indigenous people in other countries, and across cultural boundaries.
