Culturally Responsive Health Care for Older Australians
Join our interdisciplinary panel of experts as they explore the relationship between culturally diverse social and emotional wellbeing beliefs and ageing related issues, and examine how this interplay impacts the treatment and support sought by older people.

  • discuss practical tips and strategies to engage in recovery oriented culturally responsive conversations with older people 
  • identify improved target of referrals for older people as a result of improved understanding of the role of different disciplines, faith based groups and community services.
