This assessment aims to develop your knowledge and understanding of the key concepts of cultural diversity and cultural awareness, specifically those that impact the interpretation and delivery of culturally competent health services. Scenarios depicting different aspects of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultural diversity and concerns will be used to address the importance and benefits of cultural awareness and understanding for the health professional.
You will develop critical skills as you communicate thoughts, feelings and experiences. You will also be expected to express how the presented scenarios, and knowledge gained from the subject will guide you going forward professionally.
Reflective writing is evidence of reflective thinking, and is a process where you can learn you’re your experiences. In particular, the reflective journal assessment in this subject, supports you to explore and articulate your intercultural learning and its relevance to your personal, social and professional life.
