A report on the proffered papers session on day 3 of the Conference.
Today I would like to share some thoughts about the presentations relating to issues facing migrant and CALD communities. This included a numbers of sessions within this theme.
Gavin Prendergast from ACON shared his experience of developing community partnerships to deliver culturally safe and appropriate health messages to culturally and linguistically diverse groups. This demonstrated that done in the right way through partnerships we can reach very vulnerable and difficult to reach groups. This work takes time and a lot of ground work must be done to build trust and to find people from these groups who are enablers. Supporting and enabling these people is the essence to success to this work.
