Multicultural Communities Council of Illawarra

Free event for health care professionals

Advance care planning involves planning for your future health care. It enables you to make some decisions now about the health care you would or would not like to receive if you were to become seriously ill and unable to communicate your treatment preferences or make decisions. People often face complex and difficult health decisions, which may be influenced by cultural considerations. Join our experts to explore the role of health and aged care providers in advance care planning, and how your team can better support people from culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) backgrounds through the process in a culturally sensitive way.

This free session is delivered by Gail Jugow, Training and Education Coordinator at PICAC/MCCI and Rebecca Taylor, National Program Manager, Education, Advance Care Planning Australia.

Partners in Culturally Appropriate Care (PICAC) NSW & ACT is part of the nationwide PICAC Alliance which is funded by the Australian Government to support aged care service providers to deliver care that meets the needs of culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) people. PICAC NSW & ACT is auspiced by the Multicultural Communities Council of Illawarra (MCCI).
