Multicultural Health Symposium 2021


Metro South Health warmly invites you to attend the inaugural Multicultural Health Symposium: A Culture of Care, to be held Thursday 20 and Friday 21 May 2021 in Brisbane.

As Queensland’s population is rich in cultural diversity, it is essential that health services and healthcare professionals provide culturally responsive healthcare that respects and recognises the unique needs of each individual patient and their family.

Over two days delegates will hear from industry leaders, peers and community members on the topics of:

  • Community engagement 
  • Cross-cultural communication
  • Health literacy
  • Organisational cultural capability
  • The use of technology in language support
  • Trauma informed care
  • Working with interpreters
  • Lessons from COVID
  • Health as a Human Right
  • Health and Inclusion for Young People

The Symposium will showcase current multicultural health initiatives from across the state and foster networking and collaboration opportunities. The Symposium will also be offering an online registration for those unable to attend in person.
