Migrant Resource Centre is delivering training on Culture and Health settings. As the demographics of Tasmania change, so does our need to be able to work effectively with people from culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) backgrounds.
Participants can expect to cover:
- Working in health settings with people from a CALD background —access and equity, key issues and considerations, effective approaches to practice (including communication), and practical guides and resources available for health services and staff
- Cultural aspects of pain management —pain response and culture, connection between Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and physical pain, cultural perceptions of pain treatment and cross-cultural capabilities for staff
- The Migrant Resource Centre and the Phoenix Centre, our services and what we do
Anyone working in health settings; anyone working in residential, acute or community services; anyone working in mental health or drug and alcohol sectors; and any students intending to work in health.
Appropriate for Tasmanian Transcultural Mental Health Network members.
Please register online by Monday 11 December.
