Lay summary
My PhD research will build upon my findings from my Masters thesis, by further exploring health equity, cultural safety, and nursing. The aims of the PhD are to: a) understand the role of racial/ethnic bias in nursing, in relation to cultural safety and health equity goals; and, b) explore how racial/ethnic bias in nursing can be reduced. The PhD will be undertaken using a Kaupapa Māori research approach, guided by Kaupapa Māori theory and other critical theories as relevant. It will use a mixed methods approach to data collection, involving both qualitative and quantitative methods.
