Public Health Physician, Health, Quality & Safety Commission, Wellington, NZ
Bronwen Chesterfield is originally from Wales and trained in the NHS before emigrating to Aotearoa in 2006. Formerly an ATY2 anaesthesia registrar, she decided to train in public health medicine after developing a greater appreciation of the impacts of structural discrimination and the socioeconomic determinants of health on patient outcomes. Bronwen works as a public health physician at the HQSC and Chairs the working group for the development of the National Immunisation Programme's Quality and Safety Framework. She has also been involved in teaching equity and cultural safety for the MCNZ, RNZCGP and the NZCPHM.
This talk will cover a rapid 101 of cultural safety, health equity and racism in Aotearoa for doctors.
