The better we know the language and culture, the person and the situation, the better we are at intercultural communication and care.
This course is aimed at supervisory and direct care staff working in multicultural aged care environments.
In this module we explore:
- perspectives on the behaviour and needs of people with cognitive decline or dementia
- how clinical variations between individuals and within individuals over time influence their behaviour and needs
- the role of our own behaviour and the environment
- strategies for communicating and providing safety and care through knowing the individual.
This course can be undertaken individually, or as part of a fuller education offering in the Intercultural Communication in Aged Care suite.
