Cultural safety moves towards creating space for the beliefs, behaviours, practices, and experiences that impact Indigenous people. This approach promotes an understanding of the ways that historical and social contexts combine with power imbalances and the way that this shapes the well-being and healthcare experiences of Indigenous people.
