More information about this programme

This training programme consists of four self-directed e-learning modules. It is designed to:

  • facilitate the acquisition of knowledge, the development of awareness and sensitivity to cultural factors, and provide opportunities to apply these as skills in practice.
  • fill the gap between theory and practice: there is a proliferation of papers and discussion on cultural competence in the literature and internet, but very little
  • to guide the application of cultural competence learning in a practical way.

The full programme aims to enable learners to develop cultural competence in clinical practice with CALD clients, and to understand some of the associated cultural challenges and issues in clinical practice.

Who do we recommend this programme to? Clinicians who are working with CALD clients in a psychiatric context in the New Zealand health system.
