Diabetes care – can you prescribe cultural sensitivity?
We don’t think so, but we’re convinced that much could be done to share cultural knowledge among health professionals who work with people from diabetes from culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) backgrounds.
Diabetes care – the question of cultural influence
I recently completed a 12-week work placement at Fenton Communications as part of a Master of Public Health degree. During my placement I worked on a project looking at diabetes in culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) communities. The project surveyed health professionals to see if they would value communication resources that could enhance their understanding of cultural influences on diabetes care and management.
