This webinar deep dives into the reflections from our Indigenous Health Strategy Group members on our journey towards embedding cultural safety in pharmacy education.

In Conversation 4: Where are we going? the panelists explored the importance of creating safe spaces, the value of respectful listening, and humanising the pharmacy profession. We launched our Reconciliation Action Plan and reflected on how we approached inclusion.

We highlighted our partnerships with the Council of Pharmacy Schools Australia and New Zealand, and the University of Sydney and outlined our shared vision for cultural safety in pharmacy.

The first 3 conversations have explored who we're here for, what our research has taught us, and what leaders in the industry are currently doing to improve health for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. Now we're preparing to forge forward.

We delivered this webinar at our annual event, the Emeritus Professor Lloyd Sansom AO Distinguished Lecture Series.
