Factors that prevent equitable access to rehabilitation for Aboriginal Australians with disabilities: the need for culturally safe rehabilitation

Kendall, E., Marshall, C. A.,

Academic Literature

2004

This article seeks to investigate the barriers that prevent Aboriginal people with disabilities from accessing rehabilitation services. Six major themes were identified, including aspects of Aboriginal culture that influenced the ability of Aboriginal people with disabilities to access services and cultural stereotypes on the part of non-Aboriginal service providers. It is recommended that models of culturally safe rehabilitation be embraced.
