The purpose of this paper is to provide the CST Standards Committee and Industry Reference Group with an overview of issues relevant to Cultural Safety and Cultural Safety Training. This will help guide CST Standards Committee decisions on what the Standards and the CST training program assessment process should be, and the Industry Reference Group in appreciating the reasoning behind these decisions. It will not be a comprehensive paper on all research and publications relating to cultural safety and culturally safety training, but will address critical issues for the ACCH Sector to consider in achieving endorsed NACCHO CST Standards.
