First Nation Ways of Being series is designed to increase the capability of Aged Services providers, to create service environments that attract and welcome First Nation peoples, both as care recipients and as employees.
The series explores the similarities and diversity of First Nation people ways of communicating and learning, how to apply policy frameworks in alignment with First Nations peoples’ approach to health and wellbeing to ensure health and well-being for the older person and the workforce.
The series’ objective is to increase the application of the cultural nuances required to:
- Create a service environment that attracts First Nation peoples (the older person using services and staff).
- Respond to the care needs of older First Nation peoples.
- Support First Nation staff to deliver services.
Module 3 of this series explores how to:
- Support the First Nation workforce with their cultural obligations.
- Assist the older person (care recipient) to return home.
- Identify and act on racism and discrimination.
