An identified solution to address an issue is agreed to be trialled by hospital staff, management, the Aboriginal community and government where relevant.
Questions to consider for this process step:
a) Has the proposed solution been presented to all relevant people within the hospital system for approval?
b) Has the view of the Aboriginal community been sought in regards to the proposed solution?
The proposed solution is often outlined in a project plan where each component of the project is identified, along with the person responsible for undertaking that task and the time period for it to be completed. This Process includes examples of action plans developed by hospitals to respond to cultural issues and alsohow this plan links to Commonwealth Government policy.
The solution that is developed to address an issue should be locally driven and agreed to. The case studies provided in this section offer ideas on what type of responses have been developed elsewhere but do no mandate a particular solution.
