Prof Nurse. 2003 Feb;18(6):350-4.


Racism can prevail as part of the ethos or culture of an organisation. Part two of this four-part Study paper on child protection discusses institutional racism within child-care services and the damage that can be caused by myths and stereotypes. Increasing the number of black and ethnic-minority staff within the NHS to reflect the communities they serve is an important step.
