3 3 Facts and Figures Approx. 25% of Victorians are overseas-born Victorians come from around 250 countries 1 in 5 speak a language other than English Around 200,000 have limited English skills

6 6 What has ethnicity got to do with health? Some recent findings: Gestational diabetes - Vietnamese-Australian women as a group are at greatest risk of misunderstanding GD according to a multi-ethnic study (Carolan et al, 2009) Obesity – Obesity is more common among immigrant male children where English is not spoken in the home (Renzaho et al, 2009) Vitamin D deficiency – veiled, dark-skinned women are at greater risk e.g. Middle Easterners are at 4-fold risk compared to other Australians (Brock et al, 2004)

7 7 Immigrant patient needs may include: The need to communicate through a professional interpreter The need to have family involved and present in consultations or treatments The need to encounter health providers from similar cultural or language backgrounds

8 8 Culturally competent organisations Adapt programs, policies and services to meet the needs and expectations of local culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) communities Provide and support health services which are: oresponsive oinclusive orespectful oflexible and osensitive

9 9 Six Guiding Principles of Cultural Competency Seek and maintain ongoing commitment from senior management Work towards the progressive integration of cultural competency principles into all Division systems, quality indicators and processes Provide relevant ongoing staff training and support - and ensure that cultural competency indicators are a part of all programs Include community representation and consultation in program planning, development, monitoring and evaluation Aim for manageability and sustainability Frame within a well-defined economic model Adapted from Veljanovski & Rodriguez (2009)

10 10 A culturally competent Division … Adapts services and service environments to meet and reflect a diversity of identified cultural needs Promotes practices to provide quality patient care to consumers with limited English e.g. interpreter use Plans and evaluates programs with the involvement of CALD consumers and community groups Fosters relationships with and accesses resources and training from multicultural and refugee agencies

11 11 A culturally competent Division … Supports learning activities for GPs and nurses caring for asylum seekers, refugees and migrants Profiles diversity in locally available international medical graduates and promotes bicultural workers Disseminates information about cultural values and/or health beliefs and identified gaps in knowledge Establishes linkages between rural health services and metropolitan immigrant specialist services

12 12 A culturally competent Division … Views cultural competency practices as integral to core business rather than as a specialist area Routinely monitors and evaluates programs to assess responsiveness to the needs of local CALD community Provides or facilitates ongoing training and education on health and diversity to Divisions and clinical staff Promotes interpreter use, the use of community language resources and active consumer engagement

13 13 A culturally competent Division … Employs CALD program officers, bilingual staff and peer educations to work with local communities Attempts to ensure program and provider workforce reflects the cultural diversity of the catchment area Moves away from “quick fix” approaches Allocates adequate time and resources to develop sustained change Adapted from Cultural Competency in Health (2006)
