Health Care and Indigenous Australians: Cultural safety in practice uses a cultural safety approach for undergraduate health students or professionals wanting to improve their practice in relation to Indigenous Australian clients. With fourteen chapters that include activities, critical thinking questions, poems, ‘making it local' activities, and case scenarios, readers should find that the material challenges them to think in new ways about Indigenous health and about their practice more generally.
