CEH to partner with The Royal Children’s Hospital to engage with our diverse community.
The Centre for Culture, Ethnicity and Health (CEH) is excited to announce a new training partnership with The Royal Children’s Hospital (RCH).
This partnership will see 6000 staff undertake training to build on their existing knowledge and skills of working with refugee and migrant communities.
We are honoured to be working with such an important and renowned organisation with our Cultural Competence training module.
We admire the incredible work that RCH does to improve the health and well-being of children in our community, who come from diverse cultures and backgrounds.
“The passionate care provided by RCH is fundamentally based on respect, which aligns with our own values at CEH,” Co-Manager of CEH Bernice Murphy said today.
“We are delighted to partner with such a renowned organisation in healthcare, whose work improves the lives of so many people,” she said.
The CEH Cultural Competency module helps organisations be culturally responsive to diverse clients. It is suitable for health, community and government staff working with clients from culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) backgrounds. It also provides a theoretical framework for people who are already working in a culturally responsive setting.
