In its simplest form, inclusive practice is a form of listening and learning; it is about taking the time and opening the mind to try to understand another person or perspective. In healthcare environments, inclusive practice involves using that information to build a professional relationship to improve health care for individuals and for communities. Inclusive practice can foster a sense of belonging. In the contemporary Australian health system, exemplary health care involves give and take, listening and learning, and acceptance and guidance by both the health professional and the person in need of care or support.
