Cultural Competency 

Cultural competency is an important element of health and community organisation service delivery, required to ensure all community members receive access to care that meets their needs. A culturally competent health care system can help improve health outcomes and quality of care, and can contribute to the elimination of racial and ethnic health disparities. Further, it promotes respect, inclusion and equality.

 

Campaspe, Central Victoria and Bendigo Loddon Primary Care Partnerships have produced this online professional development resource list that incorporates best practice webinars and information focusing on cultural competency.

 

We will be updating the resources regularly so please send any further resources and  information to blpcp@bchs.com.au

Resources are available to suit a number of learning styles and include websites, online learning, webinars, podcasts and reports. Anticipated read time for each resource has also been indicated:
