Cultural Safety – The Outcome not the Intentions



This paper addresses the proposed name change of a nursing and midwifery course from Te Tiriti Waitangi/Institutional Racism to 'Cultural Safety'. It raises the point that cultural safety may address functional changes but does not look at deeper structural issues that were being presented in the former context.
