Culture-specific Resources (4)


These are rich resources for health practitioners on cultural groups included in the CALD Learning Programmes. They can be accessed independently of the learning programmes although pre-requisite modules are required for some of them (see link below). 


They offer relevant demographics and background research, provide material on health beliefs and practices of each culture, and how these interact in clinical assessment, treatment and interventions. Material is also developed from focus groups and consultation with migrant and refugee representatives of different cultures living in New Zealand.


Case studies, clinical scenarios, cross-cultural assessment tools, questionnaires, tables and toolkits are integrated into the learning material. Multimedia includes video, audio, graphics, and interactive exercises. 


Cultures include Chinese, Korean, Vietnamese, Cambodian, Indian, Pakistani, Afghani, Iraqi, Iranian, Somali, Sudanese, Ethiopian, Eritrean, Burundi, Rwandan
