|Title:||Cultural safety in hospitals: validating an empirical measurement tool to capture the Aboriginal patient experience.|
|Publication Title:||Australian Health Review|
|Abstract:||Objective The aim of the present study was to develop a scale to measure cultural safety in hospitals from an Aboriginal patient perspective. Methods The Cultural Safety Survey was designed to measure five key characteristics of cultural safety that contribute to positive hospital experiences among Aboriginal hospital patients. Investigators developed a range of different methods to assess the validity and reliability of the scale using a sample of 316 participants who had attended a New South Wales hospital in the past 12 months. Targeted recruitment was conducted at two hospital sites. Opportunistic recruitment took place through a local health district, discharge follow-up service and online via social media. Results The Cultural Safety Survey Scale was a robust measurement tool that demonstrated a high level of content and construct validity. Conclusion The Cultural Safety Survey Scale could be a useful tool for measuring cultural safety in hospitals from the Aboriginal patient perspective.|
