Abstract

[Extract] Australian Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander patients experience disparities in surgical access1-4 and outcomes.5-11 Several factors impact the provision of surgical care to Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander people including cultural factors, social determinants of health (social, political and economic factors), historical experiences (loss of land and culture, trans-generational trauma, grief and loss), racism and social exclusion.12 Suboptimal surgical cultural competency and cultural safety may be a contributing factor to these disparities.
