Culturally Responsive Care and Hepatitis B – Expression of Interest
Register your interest in attending this course. You will be contacted when a course is available for your jurisdiction.
With over two-thirds of people in Australia living with CHB born overseas, BBVs can have a dramatic impact on CALD patients’ health outcomes and quality of life. However, only 20% of people with CHB receive treatment and care, and migrant and refugee communities can face additional challenges in CHB management, influenced by differences in age, gender, time in Australia, migration, and resettlement experiences.
This webinar will help equip primary health practitioners and other healthcare workers with knowledge and strategies for providing culturally responsive CHB management and care to migrant and refugee patients.
Join a panel of experts for an in-depth discussion on hepatitis B for culturally and linguistically diverse populations.
After attending these webinars, participants will be able to:
- Demonstrate the challenges and barriers experienced by people from migrant and refugee backgrounds who are living with CHB.
- Outline the importance of providing culturally responsive and trauma-informed health care, including working with interpreters.
- Contrast the trajectories of Hepatitis B disease in people from CALD backgrounds compared to people born in Australia
- Describe the different biopsychosocial considerations faced by people from CALD communities living with CHB across their life span.
Live case discussions, and facilitated panel discussion, giving attendees an opportunity to discuss practical strategies with peers and specialists.
