POSTPONED: Engaging with people from CALD backgrounds – cultural inclusivity and interpreting services

About The Event


Due to unforeseeable circumstances we have had to postpone this f2f event and online live stream. New date to be confirmed.

All registered attendees will be contacted via email and a full refund will be provided to anyone who paid for their ticket.


The Tasmanian College member committee is pleased to deliver this session, which will be presented by three presenters from the Migrant Resource Centre Tasmania.

The presentation will cover:

  • What is cultural sensitivity and how this can be implemented in health care
  • The local migrant groups in Tassie and their specific cultural needs
  • Migrant community experience with health care
  • How we can improve/support their access
  • How to use interpreting services

The presentation aims to improve ambulance knowledge and engagement with patients from CALD backgrounds both through responding to cultural needs and using interpreting services effectively.

This non-clinical presentation is focused primarily on Tasmanian demographics.
