CAT@MAC – Interactive Cultural Awareness Training Workshop

25 February @ 9:30 am - 4:00 pm
HMCC Hall, 94 Henley Beach Road
Mile End, SA 5031 Australia
Free 50 spots left

Understanding the diversities and needs of both the consumer and the workforce are essential when delivering quality care.

Implementing culturally inclusive practices encourages self-esteem, re-affirms recognition and respect of care recipients’ cultural values, builds a sense of purpose and belonging, and guides all involved through the world of multicultural diversity.

Join us for an interactive session that will help to include and embed cultural significance to service delivery; support service providers to develop better understanding of care recipients from CALD backgrounds; to equip service providers with the skills and tools to encourage greater participation amongst CALD consumers; and deliver inclusive, respectful, and person centred aged care.
