This final chapter provides a cultural safety curriculum model to assist tertiary health discipline educators to create content and assessment tasks that support the development of a culturally safe health workforce. The chapter also provides educators with interprofessional activities that help students develop the required capacities and skills in line with national accreditation expectations. In this chapter readers, will find multimedia links to provide students with examples of culturally safe practice (for example, developing self-awareness, enacting cultural responsiveness, culturally safe communication), case studies to assist with tutorial discussions or to be used as assessment tasks. This chapter consolidates and expands on the learning out-comes within each chapter into demonstrable and assessable outputs aligned with national cultural safety requirements. This will also allow students to indicate the ways in which they have worked towards each cultural safety requirement and in what areas they seek to continue their cultural safety journeys.
