Interdisciplinary webinar to boost culturally responsive health care for older Australians

  29 April 2021  Mental Health Professionals' Network

Register now to attend this professional development webinar to be broadcast on Wednesday, 19 May 2021 from 6:45pm – 8:45pm (AEST).

This is the third in a series of three webinars focusing on older Australians, presented by Mental Health Professionals’ Network (MHPN) in partnership with all 31 Primary Health Networks (PHNs).

This webinar will discuss the relationship between culturally diverse social and emotional wellbeing beliefs and ageing related issues, and examine how this interplay impacts treatment and support sought by older people.

Through a facilitated discussion, panellists will provide practical tips and strategies to engage in recovery oriented, culturally responsive conversations with older people. They will provide a deeper understanding of the role different disciplines, faith based groups and community services play in providing care for older people and as a result improve referral pathways.

The interdisciplinary panel of subject matter experts includes Susan Moylan-Coombs (CEO, The Gaimaragal Group), Dr Ming Loh (a geriatrician), Sameera Suleman (an occupational therapist) with Dr Stephen Ginsborg (a general practitioner) as facilitator. Before the webinar, you can read more about the panel.

Produced on behalf of the Primary Health Networks by the Mental Health Professionals’ Network.
