Culturally responsive clinical practice framework

Culturally responsive clinical practice framework

The Migrant and Refugee Women’s Health Partnership is a national initiative bringing together health professionals, community sector representatives and government to address systemic barriers to health access and outcomes when delivering care to people from migrant and refugee backgrounds.

The Partnership will shortly be releasing a competency standards framework for clinicians entitled ‘Culturally responsive clinical practice: Working with people from migrant and refugee backgrounds.’ The purpose of the Framework is to inform the development of clinical education, training, professional development curricula and competency standards for clinicians.

College, though the Professional Standards and Academic Standards Committee’s, provided input into the Framework’s development. We are pleased to be an endorsing organisation along with the Council of Presidents of Medical Colleges (CPMC), specialist medical colleges and peak professional bodies.

The link to the Framework will be shared with Fellows after its launch in late February.
