Culturally sensitive care: I-CARE project piloting starts
The training materials for the project “I-Care – Culturally Sensitive Care in Social and Health Care” are ready – so nothing stands in the way of the test run! In cooperation with Volkshilfe Upper Austria and Senecura, we are piloting the training materials on the topic of intercultural competence in social and health care.
What does cultural diversity mean in social and health care? What challenges does it bring with it, what opportunities can organisations and professionals use for their everyday work? The I-CARE training includes eight learning modules on various topics of intercultural competence: How does cultural awareness develop, what pitfalls lurk in intercultural communication? What do I need to know about different traditions and customs that can affect everyday care?
With the health facility Senecura and Volkshilfe Oberösterreich, we were able to win partners for the piloting of the I-Care trainings in Austria. From January to the beginning of February, training sessions will take place in which professionals from senior care and mobile care will train their intercultural competences.
The I-CARE project team is looking forward to an interesting exchange and feedback on the developed materials!
