The phrase ‘cultural safety and security’ is a new aspect of health policy for Australia’s First Peoples. It asks healthcare leaders and stewards to consider cultural safety not only when health professionals communicate with patients, but throughout every point and pathway of the healthcare system which, in so doing, could become culturally secure for Australia’s First Peoples.

The question that stimulated this critique was: how are healthcare stewards meant to restructure their corporate governance so that their healthcare services are more culturally safe and secure for Australia’s First Peoples?
