Keys of Culture Series: Cultural Briefings, Workshops and Dialogue (NSW)

Thursday 9th June, 2011, Wests Illawarra Leagues Club, Unanderra NSW 

Providing culturally appropriate care can be a challenge for aged care workers who are placed routinely in a variety of cultural environments. A little cultural awareness can go a long way, giving the confidence to provide culturally appropriate care and the benefit of a job well done.

The Keys of Culture experience will be a blend of cultural briefings and workshops followed by a Q and A session. Participants will receive cultural briefings on the Macedonian, Spanish and Maltese communities. These will be followed by workshops to expand knowledge and skills to critically assess culturally appropriate service delivery; demonstrate culturally appropriate activities that are adaptable for groups, individuals and those with dementia; explore the role of appropriate support resources in the delivery
of culturally inclusive aged care services; and support religious and spiritual practices of the CALD service user.

The Keys of Culture Q and A session will address the question of what it takes to secure the best life for those people who have lived lives that have been influenced by a diverse cultural heritage.
