Culturally Responsive Practice with Older People in Health and Aged Care
The Migrant and Refugee Health Partnership collaborated with the Monash Centre for Health Research and Implementation to develop an e-learning course for health practitioners working with older people from migrant and refugee backgrounds. The e-learning course contextualises best practice across different settings including primary health care, residential agreed care and end-of-life care.
Promoting the health of refugees and migrants globally
Following the launch of the Australian Competency Standards Framework, the Migrant and Refugee Health Partnership worked closely with the World Health Organization to develop Global Competency Standards that highlight the competencies and behaviours needed to provide high-quality health services to refugees and migrants, as well as a Knowledge Guide and Curriculum Guide to operationalize the standards. This work was informed by reviews of the common health needs of refugees and migrants and of the levels of health care accessible by refugees and migrants in 18 countries.
