Cultural Awareness Training
Cultural Awareness Training for General Practice
Carbal’s Cultural Awareness Training (CAT) is a 9-hour online comprehensive course that provides health professionals within General Practice the practical tools to deliver culturally competent services.
The training is both RACGP and ACRRM accredited for the 2023 – 25 triennium for the following categories:
- Educational Activity: 4.5 hrs
- Reviewing Performance: 3.5 hrs
- Measuring Outcomes: 1 hr
The importance of cultural awareness is growing with time.
Cultural awareness means understanding the dynamic values and beliefs of different cultures.
For better opportunities, understanding and respecting various cultures are necessary. By doing so, people from different backgrounds can work together quickly. Lack of cultural awareness may mislead crucial decisions and impact health outcomes.
Most often Cultural Awareness Training is delivered face-to-face, however to broaden the scope of delivery and be accessible to you right now, in the right location, at the right time; this online dynamic education package has been developed.
Although it is a one-on-one experience, the course is interactive with quizzes, reflections and videos and has the added benefit of having the opportunity to work at your own pace.
Who Can Enrol?
Carbal Clinical CAT is specifically designed for those who work in General Practice. The content is parallel to Carbal’s Competent CAT, however this course is accredited with both RACGP and ACRRM and applies directly to a General Practice setting. It includes content around the Medicare Benefit Schedule Item numbers, how to implement and includes activities around current patient demographics.
Carbal CAT is a 9-hour learning package.
The entire course is required to be completed within 3 months of enrolling.
