8:00pm Wednesday, 19 May 2021

Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD) Australian communities often face a number of barriers (such as, low English proficiency) when accessing healthcare. This impacts on their access and reception of healthcare and ability to manage their medications optimally.

This three-part session aims to explore the perceptions of CALD community on their healthcare experiences and review medication management strategies proposed in current research to address these gaps. A discussion panel will follow the presentations.

1. Asthma management

2. Written information at discharge from hospital

3. Appropriate delivery of medication information
