IAHA Consulting delivers cultural safety training based on an evidence based Cultural Responsiveness Framework.
The IAHA Cultural Safety training is action orientated, strength-based and focuses on critical self-reflective practice identifying one’s impact on another. It is interactive and centres around three driving principles ‘what do we need to know, who do we need to be and how do we transform behaviours and systems in order to be culturally safe and responsive in meeting the needs of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
It is delivered in 4 stages of online and blended learning and is unique from other Cultural Safety courses because it is action oriented in its framework which is why we refer to our training as Cultural Responsiveness. Contact us here to request a PDF of the framework

IAHA Cultural Responsiveness training focuses on how to build cultural safety and how to deliver culturally safe and responsive care and services in practical ways and how to transform and influence culturally safe and responsive action that is contextualised to professional/individual, service or organisation by addressing some of these key points:
- provide a mechanism for culturally responsive leadership through behaviour and attitude transformation so that individuals and organisations can better understand and act upon culturally responsive ways of knowing, being and doing.
- offer practical, action-based and solution-focused ways forward for individuals, organisations and services to improve their capability to meet the health and wellbeing needs of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
- be strengths based, exploring what works and what could work better within the participant’s context; and
- understand cultural safety and the impact of racism on another person that affects their health and wellbeing outcomes
