Australian nurses slammed over ‘white privilege’

It isn’t necessary, nor useful to bully another person on their alleged ‘privilege’ in a relationship between nurse and patient.

But if there is anyone who ought to acknowledge privilege here, it is Aboriginal patients.

Of course, Aboriginals face substantial health disadvantages today in comparison to non- Aboriginal Australians.

But when considering the contrast between unclean, unhealthy, outdoor environments with barely bush medicine for pain relief which once existed, and air-conditioned, comfortable, medically- attuned services with painkilling support now present in Australian hospitals, Aboriginals are boundlessly better off and in a certain sense, reap the fruits of colonialism.

All the while, guilt- plagued whites grovel for forgiveness by endlessly making new apologies, accomodations and exceptions to temporarily relieve their incessant self- hatred.

Sounds a lot like ‘privilege’ to me.

“Australian nursing and midwifery code of conduct slammed over ‘white privilege,’” Daily Mail, by Rohan Smith, March 22, 2018:

AUSTRALIAN nurses are pushing back against a change that requires them to “acknowledge white privilege” before treating patients.

Nurses and midwives around the country must now adhere to a new code of conduct with a section specifically dedicated to “culture” and which details white Australians’ inherent privilege “in relation to Aboriginal and Torres Straight Islanders”.

The new code, which came into effect in March, has been labelled “eye-watering”, “cultural madness” and “unacceptable”. A peak body representing nurses in Queensland is even calling for the chairman of the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia to be sacked over it.

“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 it and it’s unacceptable.”

Credlin called it “almost too hard to believe”. “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. The nurses must simply abide by the new code which state clearly that “cultural safety is as important to quality care as clinical safety”.

“Cultural safety … requires nurses and midwives to undertake an ongoing process of self-reflection and cultural self-awareness, and an acknowledgment of how a nurse’s/midwife’s personal culture impacts on care,” the code reads.

“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 acknowledgment of white privilege…

  1. Indeed Aboriginals should be grateful the British colonised them and nobody else. Of course when white Australians can’t be proud without being racist such a truth becomes impossible to understand.

    1. Yeah I think there have been some consequences that aren’t entirely rosy, but for the most part Aboriginals should be grateful for British settlement. They won’t be however, nor see the logic when whites explain it so.

    2. Well, when you’ve been trained by the Bolshevik to understand yourself as a victim the programming is hard to break I suppose. Maybe all needs be said is that going back to 1700 is not on the menu? Interesting in USA the UN is attempting to undermine US sovereignty with recognition of tribal land claims.

    3. Yeah I think they’re definitely has been some bolshveik training. But this has been particularly useful with Aboriginals, because they are stoking resentment and tensions which already exists. And I don’t see it going away, question is whether leftist whites can break the shackles of incessant guilt or not.

    4. Leftist whites seem to be addicted to the feelings, which is why I determine that is how ALL leftwing politics works, not on the mind, but on the heart. The heart does supersede the mind in decision making so lock it in there and it will be really hard to budge. Therefore the strategy has to be to espouse as much pride in our history as possible by outright refutation of the claims; by pointing to the challenges of civilisation and what we have provided; by fully defending ourselves with pride and conviction. It is one thing to do that and leave a door open for people to join, quite another to go on a race based bash fest that blows up in the face. here is a single idea, next time someone comes along to whip up the grievances. Ask if they have ever heard of Scotland? When they say “No!” you can tell them about how the whites tore each other to shreds FAR WORSE than did ever happen to the Aborigines and if the penny doesn’t drop show them WW1 & 2. All white slaughter fest. Maybe that will jig their mind. Lastly, ask them “what will be the basis for your civilisation?” They won’t have an answer because all they have been trained to do is attack and see the world through a very limited filter.
