  • 3 hours (CME/CNE/MOPS accredited) for online self-paced, self-reflective, interactive learning<

This course is intended for anyone working in primary care, secondary care or mental health services who wants to work more effectively with refugee patients/clients. Very few refugees emerge from their experiences without having endured or witnessed some form of physical and/or psychological trauma.

The aim of this course is to help you work better with refugee patients during consultations; increase your awareness of settlement challenges; and to guide you on how to respond to the traumatic experiences a patient and their may have endured.

  • Demonstrate an understanding of pre and post-settlement challenges for refugees
  • Gain awareness of some physical and mental health challenges for refugees
  • Demonstrate ability to handle sensitive issues (FGM and torture and trauma) with refugees
  • Demonstrate ability to use strengths of refugees in interventions
  • Integrate learning through role plays which demonstrate best practice

On completing this course you will have a better understanding of the ‘refugee experience’ and the long-term physical and psychological impacts on refugees resettled in New Zealand; and have developed new skills on how to use strengths-based interventions in planning care with refugee patients and their families.
