Cultural Competency and Safety: A Guide for Health Care Administrators, Providers and Educators

This document provides a background on the origins of cultural competency and cultural safety, highlighting two international experiences as examples. The guide explains the need for culturally competent and safe care, identifies the stakeholders in this process, and outlines ways we can evaluate health care programs and policies to ensure that they are culturally safe. We also look at culturally safe environments in education. Finally, we examine how culturally safe environments in health care and education are applied to First Nations, Inuit and M├ętis.
