“Develop strategies to provide culturally respectful care”
Australia is a multicultural society. Overseas born Australians make about 28% of the entire population. If you work in health and/or aged care, it is very likely that you had interactions with patients/clients from a different culture.
In the context of Palliative Care and End of Life, cultural considerations add another layer of complexity to care. In this webinar, we will discuss some of the cultural considerations that have an impact on Palliative Care and End of Life.
In this session you will:
- Understand the importance of cultural awareness
- Explore different end of life beliefs
- Develop strategies to provide culturally respectful care
- Take the opportunity to reflect on your own practice
