The purpose of completing this program of learning includes:


At its core, this program of learning underscores and improves the accreditation contributor’s knowledge, skill and responsiveness of and to self and other, for the application of cultural safety in accreditation.


Building from purpose one, the accreditation contributor is able to appropriately use, and interpret, the accreditation standards that are related to  cultural safety, used by their health profession to accredit and monitor accredited programs of study.


Building on purpose two, and using the profession’s accreditation structures, the accreditation contributor is able to guide and compel education providers, their educators and supervisors, to provide culturally safe training.


Through improved understanding of cultural safety, and through appropriate use of accreditation processes, guide and compel students and supervisors to contribute to culturally safe patient care.


Provide accreditation contributors with knowledge and understanding of cultural safety to enable them to fully participate in discussion about the standards of their health profession and how the standards fully integrate concepts of cultural safety.

This training is designed for accreditation contributors from the health professions regulated under the National Regulation and Accreditation Scheme (NRAS).

This training costs $494.00 (plus GST) and is payable on registration.
