Abstract

Purpose: This article examines the concept and use of the term cultural safety in Canada and the United States. Design: To examine the uptake of cultural awareness, cultural sensitivity, cultural competence, and cultural safety between health organizations in Canada and the United States, we reviewed position statements/policies of health care associations. Findings: The majority of selected health associations in Canada include cultural safety within position statements or organizational policies; however, comparable U.S. organizations focused on cultural sensitivity and cultural competence. Discussion: Through the work of the Center for American Indian Resilience, we demonstrate that U.S. researchers engage with the tenets of cultural safety—despite not using the language. Conclusions: We recommend that health care providers and health researchers consider the tenets of cultural safety. Implications for Practice: To address health disparities between American Indian populations and non–American Indians, we urge the adoption of the term and tenets of cultural safety in the United States.
