Cultural Diversity in Aged Care

Synopsis
Our cultural backgrounds, experiences and beliefs can influence our day-to-day behaviour without us even realising it. Within aged care, culture has a major impact on how we work and how we communicate with patients and residents. Often a cultural adjustment needs to take place so that an appropriate and culturally sensitive level of care can be delivered to the aged care client. This programme investigates what culture is and how we can make our communication relevant in the face of cultural barriers. It also looks at different cultural groups and personal cultural history, while also considering individual religious practices and traditions. Although this is an Australian film and references are made to Australian culture the content is universally applicable. This film is a useful training resource for care home, domiciliary and healthcare assistants. It can be used for Common Induction Standards and Health and Social Care Diploma level 2.
