Register Now for 'Everyone Has Culture' -
Cultural Responsiveness for Better Health Services
May 28 & 29; 30 & 31


Could your work benefit from:
• learning to work more effectively with clients from culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) communities?
• engaging in a strategic overview of the impact of migration and settlement and how they are prioritised over health and health seeking behaviour?
• discussing health promotion and sexual health and blood borne virus case studies from CALD communities?

An investment in one of two workshops entitled 'Everyone has Culture' - Cultural Responsiveness for Better Health Services can greatly benefit your work. The Sexual Health and Blood Borne Virus Program and the Cultural Diversity Unit of the WA Department of Health welcome your registration.
