Queensland Stoma Association Ltd (QSA) understands that Cultural diversity ensures that the differences of all persons are respected and appreciated.

The definition of Cultural Diversity is “the existence of a variety of cultural or ethnic groups” within our community.

The definition of Cultural awareness is “the ability to understand the differences between themselves from others with a different ethnicity, background, language or belief”.

The purpose of this Cultural Diversity Statement is to reassure persons who come into contact with QSA that QSA workers have an awareness and understanding of cultural diversity and will appreciate, respect and support (where possible) the cultural differences of QSA members, their families and carers, QSA workers, other QSA Service Users and visitors to QSA.
