Culturally Inclusive Service Delivery in Aged Care

Understanding different cultures underpins our ability to be responsive to the diverse needs of the people we engage. This training is for anyone who works with culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) people and would like to develop strategies to enhance cultural competence.

Working Effectively with Interpreters 

Learn how to work with professional interpreters to communicate effectively with consumers from CALD backgrounds and develop strategies for more culturally inclusive services. This training is for anyone who communicates with non-English speaking clients and would like to know about what services are available, including interpreting and translating documents.

Working in Culturally Diverse Teams

A CALD workplace provides a unique opportunity to connect and learn from people of different backgrounds. Organisations who embrace diversity see it as capturing talent, boosting innovation and encouraging productivity. We can provide training for service providers who would like to learn how they can better support and encourage inclusion and connections in a diverse workforce.

The training is for anybody who is interested in delivering health and care services to CALD people living with dementia.

This session includes information on culturally appropriate practises that can help build skill and confidence in the palliative approach for people from CALD backgrounds.
