Where we are up to 

Justice Health has placed implementation of the Cultural Safety Standards on hold whilst they engage with the Victorian Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisation (VACCHO) regarding VACCHO’s proposed cultural safety framework and accreditation process.

The Cultural Safety Standards will be reviewed against VACCHOs cultural safety framework to ensure concept alignment with the Aboriginal peak health body. Justice Health will also investigate the benefits of the VACCHO accreditation for health services alongside implementation of the cultural safety standards.
