Dementia Training Australia (DTA) will be holding a half day training workshop for health professionals interested in using the Cultural Assessment for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
The Cultural Assessment is an excellent tool that can direct care planning. This ‘living document’ is designed to start a conversation and build rapport with your Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander clients and their families.
Registrations for the workshop are invited from health professionals working in either Residential Aged Care or a community setting, particularly those responsible for assessing and caring for Aboriginal people living with dementia.
