September 4 @ 9:00 am - 4:30 pm

  • How to elicit culturally significant information in a sensitive way
  • How to plan for the culturally relevant needs of clients, families and friends
  • How to identify when a communication problem is occurring and apply effective strategies to resolve it

The workshop will be presented in partnership with Palliative Care Victoria and will be delivered by Judith Miralles and Associates who are recognised as experts in the provision of cross-cultural training in the health sector.
