Culturally appropriate care for older Australians

Nurses working in the aged care industry in Australia are required to understand and appropriately manage patients with culturally diverse backgrounds.

Australia is one of the most culturally diverse nations in the world, click “home to more than 600, mind 000 people over the age of 65 years who were born overseas, and this figure is growing rapidly” – Assistant Minister for Social Services Mitch Fifield.

One of the challenges for aged care providers and individual nurses is finding appropriate ongoing education around this topic.


Aged care Learning Solutions offer a range of learning activities, such as Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Older People that directly relates to staff providing care to older people with culturally diverse backgrounds. This course along with many other relevant topics can assist nurses looking to increase their knowledge and understanding while proving support to older Australians.

Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Older People educates nurses around the rights and responsibilities, cultural safety and cultural competence, language services, traditions and cultural information, past and present trauma.
