Indigenous groups hit back over nurses, midwives’ ‘white privilege’ code of conduct.

A NEW code of conduct for Australian nurses and midwives was slammed for including a reference to “white privilege”. But this is why it’s necessary.

Should the nursing and midwife code of conduct include references to “white privilege”?Source:istock

IT’S the two words that have the medical profession divided — “white privilege”.

Last week it was reported that nurses and midwives around the country were subject to a new code of conduct that declares “cultural safety is as important as clinical safety” and requires “the acknowledgment of white privilege”.

The new code, which came into effect in March, was labelled “cultural madness”.

“This is eye-watering stuff,” Graeme Haycroft from the Nurses Professional Association of Queensland told Sky News host Peta Credlin.

“We’re calling for the resignation of the chairman of the board (Associate Professor Lynette Cusack) because she’s put her name to (the new code) and it’s unacceptable.”

But indigenous groups say they’re “stunned” by commentary around the new code and that the acknowledgment of white privilege within the nursing profession is long overdue and completely necessary.

“It is clear ... that Aboriginal and Torres Straight Islander peoples still experience poorer health outcomes than non-indigenous Australians,” Janine Mohamed from the Congress of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Nurses and Midwives said.

She cited the 2018 Closing the Gap report tabled by Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull which states that the target to close the health gap between the two groups is “not on track”.

“It is well understood inequities are a result of the colonisation process and the many discriminatory policies to which Aboriginal and Torres Straight Islander Australians were subjected to, and the ongoing experience of discrimination today,” Ms Mohamed said.


The Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia hit back at claims by Mr Haycroft that there was no consultation and that the majority of nurses and midwives were opposed to the new code.

Others joined the board in support of the new code.

“I was stunned to read (Mr Haycroft’s) comments regarding nurses and indigenous Australians on the weekend, as part of his criticism of the new NMBA Codes and the term ‘cultural safety’ which is defined in a glossary connected to the codes,” Queensland Nurses and Midwives Union Secretary Beth Mohle said.

“These codes were the subject of lengthy consultations with the professions of nursing and midwifery and other stakeholders including community representatives. This review was comprehensive and evidenced-based.”

She said the codes were written “by nurses and midwives for nurses and midwives” and sought to “ensure the individual needs and backgrounds of each patient are taken into account during treatment”.

During a segment dedicated to the new code on Sky News last week, Ms Credlin suggested nurses must now “announce” their white privilege before treating patients. That, of course, is incorrect.

“Before (a midwife) delivers a baby to an indigenous woman she’s supposed to put her hands up and say: ‘I need to talk to you about my white privilege’, not about my infection control, my qualifications or my training as a midwife?” she asked Mr Haycroft.

He said that was correct, but there’s no requirement to “announce” anything, a point rammed home by Ms Mohle.

“The entire premise for the (Sky News) segment was false,” she said.

“There is no requirement for nurses to apologise for being white, which would be very awkward for the more than 1500 indigenous nurses across Australia and the countless others who also aren’t white to begin with.

“There’s no doubt cultural factors, including how a patient feels while within the health system, can impact wellbeing. For example, culture and background often determine how a patient would prefer to give birth or pass away.

“Every day, nurses and midwives consider a range of complex factors, including a patient’s background and culture to determine the best treatment. These codes simply articulate what is required to support safe nursing and midwifery practice for all.”

A number of organisations, including the Australian College of Nursing, released statements in support of the new code.

What is 'white privilege' - no more than another anti-white slogan, like 'blame the white man'.

What of all the privileges given to indigenous Australians? Are we not ALL equal? http://fairdinkumnewschat.b1.jcink.com/uploads/fairdinkumnewschat/smiley_don_t_know.gif

More rubbish from the so called progressive movement, this rubbish only further divides our community.

Nothing to do with that Lee http://fairdinkumnewschat.com/wink.gif

And grog, drugs, and poor living conditions have not caused poorer health outcomes for indigenous Australians - the problem must have been caused by 'white people'.

Media Watch - White privilege outrage ?:
http://www.abc.net.au/mediawatch/transcripts/s4821769.htm

Must I do this every time Bear posts Fake News, (this time from those journalists - we just make shit up - from Murdoch's NewsCorpse.. The report was a construct by Peta Credlin interviewing Graeme Haycroft, a 'union leader'' with links to the LNP and the H R Nicholls Society. http://fairdinkumnewschat.com/biggrin.gif

Program Transcript: - or you can watch the program video in the link to Media Watch. http://fairdinkumnewschat.com/biggrin.gif

Claims the new nursing code will force white nurses to declare ‘white privilege’ are incorrect


But now to a story that is almost as stupid. Here’s the promo for Friday night’s Today Tonight in Adelaide:


ANNOUNCER: Having to apologise for being white.

GRAEME HAYCROFT: I think it’s a disgrace.

ANNOUNCER: Nurses told to say sorry before treating Aborigines.

GRAEME HAYCROFT: You have real consequences.

ANNOUNCER: Politically correct or risk dismissal.


— Channel Seven, Today Tonight promo, 22 March, 2018


And those crazy claims weren’t just on Seven. The trusty Daily Mail had them the day before:


Racist to its core. Outrage as nurses are subject to a new code where they must announce their 'white privilege' before treating Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander patients


— Daily Mail, 21 March, 2018


Is it April Fool’s Day, I hear you ask? No, that’s still a week away.

So where did it come from?

Take a bow Peta Credlin, Tony Abbott’s former chief of staff, who told her Sky News viewers on Wednesday it was a story she “almost can’t believe”.

At least she got that bit right. She then went on to ask her guest:


PETA CREDLIN: Please tell me I’m wrong. As I understand it, this new code of conduct for nurses in Queensland requires obviously white nurses to announce they’ve got white privilege before they can look after patients of an Indigenous or Torres Strait Islander background. Am I right there?


— Sky News, Credlin, 21 March, 2018


And back came the answer from Graeme Haycroft of Queensland nurses’ association the NPAQ:


GRAEME HAYCROFT: Yes, you are, except that it’s not just Queensland, Peta, it’s all of Australia, there’s 350,000 nurses and midwives Australia-wide and they’re all now subject to this new code.


— Sky News, Credlin, 21 March, 2018


So, is the story true? Well no. Although there is some basis to it.

There IS a new code for nurses and midwives, which came into effect this month, and it does talk about Indigenous patients, and the glossary does say this about white privilege:


GRAEME HAYCROFT: In relation to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health, cultural safety provides a decolonising model of practice based on dialogue, communication, power sharing and negotiation, and the acknowledgement of white privilege.


— Sky News, Credlin, 21 March, 2018


Now you might think that is pretty barmy stuff. But, the glossary is not the code that nurses must adhere to.

And nurses are not required, forced or even encouraged to announce their white privilege to patients before treating them, or indeed at all.

Yet that crazy claim has been gathering strength for weeks. Ever since Cory Bernardi first made it in January in his, quote, “Weekly Dose of Common Sense”, where he dubbed it “medical Marxism” and claimed the code says:


Nurses must acknowledge white privilege and voice this acknowledgment if asked …


— Senator Cory Bernardi’s Weekly Dose of Common Sense, 31 January, 2018


True to form, The Daily Telegraph was first to seize on the story. Then, a few weeks later the Cairns Post cranked it up.

And last week the Daily Mail and News.com.au followed the Credlin interview by revving it up again.

At which point Andrew Bolt and Chris Smith joined the fun:


ANDREW BOLT: What about if they’re just within seconds of dying and the nurse has to fling themselves into action, but they have to stop, before, while they just announce their white privilege, oh too late.

CHRIS SMITH: Yeah.

ANDREW BOLT: Gone.

CHRIS SMITH : Please keep your heart beating for one more beat, because sir I need to talk to you about my white privilege.


— 2GB, The Chris Smith Show, 22 March, 2018


Hilarious, eh?

So, who is driving all this outrage?

Answer: Credlin’s interviewee, Graeme Haycroft, founder of the breakaway union, the Nurses Professional Association of Queensland, which represents around 2500 – yes, 2500 – of Australia’s 390,000 nurses and midwives.

Now Haycroft is not a nurse but a labour hire millionaire, who’s made his fortune busting unions. He’s also a former bigwig in the LNP, and a member of the fiercely anti-union HR Nicholls Society.

And he’s been spreading fear about the code to anyone who’ll listen, like the inimitable John Mackenzie, or Macca, on Cairns’ 4CA:


JOHN MACKENZIE: … When this issue emerged, everyone thought it was a practical joke. But it’s far from a practical joke, isn’t it?

GRAEME HAYCROFT: Well, yes, it’s worse than that. It’s an insidious form of racism and … it’s going to end up with a form of apartheid in the health system.


— Classic Hits 4CA, Mornings with John MacKenzie, 7 March, 2018


And a couple of weeks before that, Graeme Haycroft was getting 2GB’s Michael McLaren in Sydney equally riled up:


MICHAEL MCLAREN: This all sounds ridiculous to me. What the hell is cultural safety? No one’s ever heard of it.


— 2GB, Overnight with Michael McLaren, 13 March, 2018


So, what is cultural safety? Well, according to that new code from the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia:


Rather than saying ‘I provide the same care to everyone regardless of difference,’ cultural safety means providing care that takes into account Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander peoples’ needs.


— Nursing & Midwifery Board of Australia code of conduct for nurses and code of conduct for midwives, March, 2018


Doesn’t sound too bad, you might think. But Haycroft – who’s using the issue to rally support for his union – claims the code will see nurses lose their jobs. And here is how:


GRAEME HAYCROFT: If you’ve got an Aboriginal or Indigenous patient and they don’t like the bedside manner of the nurse because the nurse is not acknowledging her white privilege, if she happens to be white, then a complaint can be lodged and there’s no defence.


— 2GB, Overnight with Michael McLaren, 13 March, 2018


So, is that true? Well, no again, at least according to the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia, who drew up the code:


MEDIA WATCH: Are nurses encouraged to announce their ‘white privilege’ before treating indigenous patients?

NMBA: No.

MEDIA WATCH: Is there any requirement to acknowledge or announce ‘white privilege’ before treating a patient?

NMBA: No.

MEDIA WATCH: Can a nurse be sacked for NOT declaring or addressing their ‘white privilege’ to a patient?

NMBA: No. The recent criticisms from Mr Haycroft are based on completely untrue statements.


— Nursing & Midwifery Board of Australia, 23 March, 2018


Graeme Haycroft told Media Watch he stands by his claims, and no doubt he’ll be encouraged to keep on repeating them by conservative commentators who’d love to believe they’re true.

But they are not. And he should not be allowed to make the claims unchallenged.

Yep - but they won't have to with this one scepo.

Same episode, they debunked the MH370 story, but we knew that it was fake news, didn't we ?

The latest MH 370 theory is full of holes

Below is the relevant part http://fairdinkumnewschat.b1.jcink.com/uploads/fairdinkumnewschat/smiley_IMHO.png from the statement from the Midwifery Board of Australia.


QUOTE
The principle of cultural safety in the new Code of conduct for nurses and Code of conduct for midwives (the codes) provides simple, common sense guidance on how to work in a partnership with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples. The codes do not require nurses or midwives to declare or apologise for white privilege



It denies certain things but it does not tell us specifically what is in this new code with regard to "cultural safety". Where can we find just what is in it?

I know you hate his guts and do not agree with any of his beliefs Bill, but for a pollie I have found Bernardi to be more honest than most.

Who is asking you to do this Bill?? http://fairdinkumnewschat.b1.jcink.com/uploads/fairdinkumnewschat/smiley_don_t_know.gif

I think that you are imagining things again, so Media Watch is a reliable source then?? http://fairdinkumnewschat.com/rolleyes.gif


Ok, this is fake news because Bill said so? really is this a new rule for this site?

More to the point you hate me posting these stories here...Bill wants these stories covered up because they go against his beliefs.

Nurses and White Privilege.




Today Tonight reports on the controversy over the new Nurses and Midwifery Code of Conduct requiring them to acknowledging 'white privilege' when treating patients. Senator Cory Bernardi raised the alarm about this controversy in his Weekly Dose of Common Sense newsletter www.corybernardi.com

Nurses and White Privilege.

Click o the title bar and guess what Bear ? It's a video from the Australian Conservatives, in spite of the Channel 7 logo. - not news, but Fake News. http://fairdinkumnewschat.com/biggrin.gif Cory Bernardi has become something of a YouTube blogger himself now that his venture into the Australian Conservatives has gone belly up. http://fairdinkumnewschat.com/biggrin.gif

Nurses to practice 'Cultural Safety'

Click on the title bar to reveal that it's published by "Independent Man" a self confessed YouTube blogger. http://fairdinkumnewschat.com/biggrin.gif

BOTH videos are factually incorrect - but keep digging young man. Your posts reveal more about you and your views every day.

Do you ever read any real news or do you only rely on the paranoid rantings of YouTube whackos ? http://fairdinkumnewschat.com/biggrin.gif http://fairdinkumnewschat.b1.jcink.com/uploads/fairdinkumnewschat/lbill.gif

It's not 'fake news' because I say so Bear - It's 'Fake News' because it's easily provable to be factually incorrect and the sources are easily traceable.

This is going to surprise you Bear, but I couldn't care less what you post. .....However, when you post incorrect, racially charged opinions from questionable bloggers, I will challenge those posts.

You really need to stop living in the alt right unreality of Fake News , young man.

Cheers Bear. http://fairdinkumnewschat.b1.jcink.com/uploads/fairdinkumnewschat/lbill.gif
