Cultural Diversity in the Nursing Workplace Culture is defined as “the sum total of behavioural norms, methods of communication, patterns of thinking, and beliefs and values of a designated group of people that can be passed down to the next generation” (Koutoukidis, Stainton & Hughson 2013, p. 115) Australia is a melting pot of diverse cultures. It is a multicultural nation due to the following facts: about 4 in 10 Australians are migrants or the offspring of migrants, one in four Australians were born overseas, and about 13.7% of migrants come from non-English speaking countries and migrants from 160 countries call Australia home. (HLTHIR403B: Work effectively with culturally diverse clients and co-workers 2010, p. 7) The above-mentioned facts have an immediate impact on your nursing career and how you work with others. In doing so, you must learn and understand the different cultures of your workmates; therefore you have to be culturally appropriate and responsive. You must be able to work harmoniously and carry out duties and responsibilities properly.

The DIBP client service charter sets out an aim of answering 85% of calls to the department within 2 minutes. In early 2012 the MSC changed its performance targets for staff.

The following year an “Expert Panel” was deployed to research and recommend on “the options for constitutional change and approaches to a referendum that would be most likely to obtain widespread support across the Australian community” (Castan 2013 p. 13). Castan argues that a sunset clause was put into place to provide “a clear timeframe to build towards
