Australian Healthcare Governance and the Cultural Safety and Security of Australias First Peoples: an annual critique Western NSW & Far West Health Libraries Blog

The phrase 'cultural safety and security' is a new aspect of health policy for Australia's First Peoples. It asks healthcare leaders and stewards to consider cultural safety not only when health professionals communicate with patients, but throughout every point and pathway of the healthcare system which, in so doing, could become culturally secure for Australia's First Peoples.

The question that stimulated this critique was: how are healthcare stewards meant to restructure their corporate governance so that their healthcare services are more culturally safe and secure for Australia's First Peoples?

All over the globe public housing is under siege "IndyWatch Feed National"

The following is from Save Public Housing Victoria

Have you seen the ABC documentary about Waterloo called There Goes Our Neighbourhood? 

Quote All over the globe public housing is under siege.

And now its Australias turn.

Whichever major party is in power across Australian states the despicable covert privatisation of Public Housing and public land is likely to continue, because whats driving it is money, power and mega-profits.

Homelessness of course will worsen!! The homeless, to our shame, are our internal refugees

Personal testimonials (1)

At a meeting in Gronn Place in West Brunswick earlier this year, we heard from Louise who spoke about her sisters experience in Millers Point in Sydney.

Here are some extracts from her speech.

When the government said they wanted to renew Millers Point, they said the main reason was that it was costing too much in maintenance. I can tell you right now, they spent nothing on maintenance. People had to paint their own places, had to replace their own stoves. The government spent nothing.

In Millers Point, to get them out, they offered them the world not telling them they were finding them alternative accommodation by throwing those (public) tenants out. The same pretext they said to existing tenants, Youll only be out for 3 monthsand well fix the place up. In the meantime, they brought in people from Millers Point.

Theres two reasons why people live in Public Housing. The first reason is they choose to because of their community. Secondly, they cant afford any other accommodation, either temporarily or permanently. There has to be a place in our society for people who cant afford to buy or pay high rents. Everybody is a citizen. 

Regarding the displacement process underway in Melbournes inner-city under the Labor government

Louise: People have mentioned the government coming along with pieces of paper and smiles on their faces. What happens is they tell lie after lie. The minute people give up their place in Public Housing theyre heading down the road of homelessness for a number of reasons.

Exhibit local culture at The Roxy Thoughts are like fishes///

Leetons iconic Roxy is many things to many people

As one of dozens who have exhibited in that venue it seems important this activity is promoted as part of future development.

Between 2012 and 2013 over a thousand people attended exhibitions in the Roxy Artspace based on figures collected by Western Riverina Arts (WRA).

Regional Arts Development Officer Dr Greg Pritchard revealed many of the talents in our region and they were literally put under spotlights thanks to funds secured to develop that exhibition space.

The Roxy is the only public facility in Leeton Shire with quality lighting for exhibitions and neutral-coloured walls.

In 2014 WRA supported a visit to the Artspace by Parkview Primary students and a number of that Year Five art class said they had never visited an art exhibition previously.

Many studies have found benefits for students who are able to attend exhibitions.

I am certain that I am not the only person who enjoyed the opportunity to see exhibitions in the Roxy and hope to see more.

Let me add how much Ive enjoyed the displays on local history, for example.

While I am a member of the Leeton Art Society and the Western Riverina Arts Board, the views expressed here are my own.

I believe it is important for Leeton Shire to retain a visible presence for local culture.

Prime Minister to set up anti-corruption commission with no teeth "IndyWatch Feed National"


Contributed from New South Wales

Last week Prime Minister Scott Morrison proposed the creation of a Commonwealth Integrity Commission, after months of refusing to do so.

The intensity of public pressure and loss of a parliamentary majority forced the issue.

It is tempting to see this as a major back down. But things are not always quite what they seem. There is no intention to set up a commission to properly tackle corruption in Canberra. A smokescreen to cover up public  anger against lack of action is being erected.

Its there is black and white, in the paper submitted last Thursday, which boldly states that the CIC will not investigate direct complaints about ministers, members of parliament or their staff received from the public at large.

The implication is that information passed on by a whistleblower will not be followed up either.

All that the CIC will be mandated to do is take referrals from established government agencies and regulators. This means that the machinery to edit out what the government does not want pursued is in its hands. After all, these agencies operate under the guidelines provided by the government of the day.

Even if specific government direction does not exist, hurdles and delays conveniently in place, to  make it much harder for any complaints to be heard.

The Federal Police, for instance, has a mandate to investigate corruption. But its track record is nothing to brag about. If those who have some information to pass on, have to go to the Federal Police, and wait for them to build a case, and pass it on to the CIC, it may be a very long wait, if anything is done at all.

This will send out the message that making a complaint is a waste of time.

Secondly, any case coming under suspicion, must meet a perceived threshold test of criminality on paper. But how is this to be tested?

Those involved in corruption do not put their behaviour out there in public to be seen. Cracking cases must involve following up leaks and pulling aside the cloak of secrecy. The CIC will lack the power to do this.

Thirdly, even if a case reaches the CIC, all it is empowered to do is hand over the case to a special prosecutor, who will decide whether a criminal case should take place. Who appoints the special prosecutor?

This is a CIC without teeth.

Every indication is that there is significant corruption in Canberra. The high number of multi-million contracts, widespread connection between those in the political system and the corporate world, and the penetration of the business lobbyists provide fertile territory to induce payments for favours.

Impact of FIFO work arrangements on the mental health and well-being of FIFO workers Western NSW & Far West Health Libraries Blog

This research from the Centre for Transformative Work Design brings together findings from a literature review with a comprehensive analysis of 59 FIFO studies, a survey of more than 3000 FIFO workers, in-depth interviews, surveys of FIFO partners and former FIFO workers, and a study that tracks how workers experiences vary across five points of a swing.

The findings across all of these sources of evidence are remarkably consistent. The research shows that, even when taking account of associated risk factors such as age and education, there is a greater risk of mental ill health amongst those workers operating under FIFO work arrangements. Indeed, one third of the 3000 FIFO workers surveyed experience high or very high levels of psychological distress, as measured on an extensively validated scale.

Crucially, poorer mental health and riskier alcohol and other drug use are risk factors for suicide, and both of these risk factors are present in the FIFO sample. In addition, FIFO workers have a demographic profile (gender, age, education, job role) in which suicide likelihood is greater, while also reporting feelings of loneliness, stigma, bullying and perceived lack of autonomy. Altogether, this pattern of findings suggests that FIFO workers are likely to be at greater risk of suicide.

Arrivals hit the highest level on record "IndyWatch Feed Economics.au"

Record high arrivals

The ABS reported last week that births in Australia remained very high in 2017 at 309,142, just below the record high of 311,104 recorded for the preceding year. 

Yesterday morning the bureau also reported that permanent and long-term arrivals hit another record high of +825,480 over the year to October 2018.

This represented a strong +6.1 per cent increase from a year earlier, and was a world away from the +709,110 for the year to October 2015.

Substantial numbers, indeed.  


Education arrivals were also tracking at levels suggesting that international student enrolments will remain an ongoing force for demographic trends. 


There were also 9.2 million short-term arrivals over the year, comfortably up from 8.8 million a year earlier, as the tourism boom powers on.

Rental market lags

Record high arrivals into a period where it's rarely been tougher to get an investment loan across the line, then.

My admittedly somewhat flaky models suggest that housing markets could swing towards a rental shortage at the national level ex-Sydney by the time of the election next year, once the seasonally soft Xmas period has passed.

In which BBC Radio 4 re-divides Jerusalem "IndyWatch Feed National"

Listeners to BBC Radio 4s Today programme on December 15th heard the following (from 05:06 here) in a news bulletin presented by Alan Smith. [emphasis in italics in the original, emphasis in bold added]

Smith: Australia says it now recognises West Jerusalem as the capital of Israel but it wont be moving its embassy from Tel Aviv at this stage. The prime minister Scott Morrison has also acknowledged the aspirations of Palestinians for a future state with its capital in East Jerusalem. The divided city, where the Israeli parliament is located, is not internationally recognised as the countrys capital. Phil Mercer reports from Sydney.

Apparently BBC Radio 4 along with the BBCs correspondent in Sydney is so used to using the politically partisan term East Jerusalem that it has forgotten that although Jerusalem was indeed divided during the nineteen-year period of the unrecognised Jordanian occupation that began in 1948, it was ...
