iii. Group analysis (30 minutes)

Ask students to place their pages of paper where the whole group can see them and allow students time to view each others’ responses. Begin a group discussion by asking the following questions.

- Did you have similarities with the values?

- Did you have differences with the values?

- How do any differences or similarities potentially impact on how you provide healthcare with Aboriginal people?

- Is there anything you would like to know more about Aboriginal peoples' values?

- How could you learn more about these identified areas?
