CALD 2 - Working with Migrant Patients

This course is for health practitioners to gain insight into the settlement challenges faced by migrants; the diverse models of health and wellbeing, varying help-seeking behaviours, different expectations of healthcare from migrant patients, as well as, to gain culturally appropriate tools and approaches to address service barriers, cultural beliefs and practices and sensitive issues impacting on or presented by CALD clients and families from Asian, Middle Eastern, Latin American and African backgrounds.

With the requirement for stricter social distancing, we are now offering REMOTE TRAINING OPTIONS via zoom, on top of the current range of e-learning culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) e-learning (online) courses. 

We used zoom features in our remote zoom training to keep participants engaged, eg:

  • breakout rooms for small group discussions
  • whiteboard for recording discussions within the wider group
  • chat-box to engage learners with specific activities
  • multi-media to enhance teaching points. 

For more information about this course click on the following headings:

  • 4-hour for face-to-face in-person (facilitated by an educator)
  • 1.5-hour remote face-to-face training via video conferencing (an abridged version facilitated by an educator via zoom)
  • 3-hour online self-paced, self-reflective, and interactive learning (e-learning)

This course is intended for anyone working in primary care, secondary care or mental health services. The aim of this course is to build practitioner’s awareness of the settlement challenges faced by migrants; and to develop awareness of the diverse models of health and wellbeing, help seeking behaviours and expectations of healthcare from migrant patients

At the end of the course, participants will be able to:

  • Become aware of the challenges newcomers face throughout the migrant journey.
  • Gain insight into the phases of settlement and the acculturation process and its impact on family units.
  • Broadly understand the explanatory models of health and of migrants’ help-seeking behaviours.
  • Know what to consider to accommodate health beliefs and faith-based practices.
  • Know what to consider when raising sensitive issues with migrant patients.

On completing this course you will have greater insight into how the migration process impacts on the health and wellbeing of individuals and family units; better understanding of western and non-western explanatory models of health and how to accommodate these; and developed new skills around how to raise sensitive issues with migrant patients.

I felt this course has helped me to achieve my goals. I now have a new set of skills that I am keen to start using and to develop further as I put what I have learnt into practice

The course was great, deep, reflective and positive. Much of the positive attitude to migrants is instinctive and this was clear and concrete teaching with guidelines to maximise outcomes

Great e-learning
