Are you talking to me? Negotiating the challenge of cultural diversity in children's health care

12 Jan 2009
Description

This report is the culmination of a 3-year Australian Research Council (ARC) linkage grant Project. The project examined health interactions between families from culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) backgrounds (1st and 2nd generation) and health professionals, with a particular focus on the potential cultural ‘mismatches’ in health service provision. The aim was to explore evidence of the need for a conceptual shift and practical changes to locate diversity health care as core business within paediatric health care services. To achieve this end, the project brought together the expertise of paediatric health care consumers, health care service providers, policy makers and academics in a collaborative, integrated approach.
