eCALD Newsletter 19: June 2017

Wednesday, June 14, 2017   Posted in: Resources and Information By: Administrator With tags: newsletter, migrants, health, resources

Kia ora and welcome to our 19th edition.

eCALD® Services: Launch of new resources

eCALD® services is pleased to announce the launch of:

These resources aim to support the health workforce working in primary health, child and adolescent mental health services, child and family service, youth health services to develop knowledge, skills and attitudes needed to provide culturally appropriate mental health care to CALD children and young people.

eCALD® Research Commentary [7th Edition]

The third review in our series on Asian, migrant and refugee Child and Adolescent mental health focuses on the impact of migration on ethnic identity.

A major developmental task of adolescence is identity formation. CALD migrant and refugee background youth frequently experience substantial conflict regarding their identity. The task is compounded by the competing demands of two cultures. Whereas at school and with their peers, children are rewarded for westernising as quickly as possible, at home new habits and behaviours are discouraged.

Health practitioners need to know how to assess intergenerational conflict and to develop culturally appropriate therapeutic approaches to intervention in refugee and migrant families.

Cross-Cultural Interest Group: Engaging Asian people in Dementia Care and Research

There is a growing population of Asians 65 years and over. There is also likely to be a correspondent increase in numbers of Asian elderly people suffering from Dementia. Dementia is a growing clinical issue for general practice with more elderly people around and more people with dementia and their families staying at home.

You are invited to this research workshop to assist the researchers in answering two broad questions relating to how the Auckland Regional Cognitive Impairment Pathway applies to Asian people living in Auckland and how can researchers engage Asian people in clinical and epidemiological dementia research.

Cross-Cultural Newsletter: Dementia – Do Asians have different needs?

Dr Gary Cheung, Dr Michal Boyd, and Dr Sarah Callum provided background information about their research project on the Asian need for dementia care. The presenters discussed the rationale for the need and significance for a research, research protocol, lessons learnt from previous research experience, as well as the development of a strategy on how to engage Asian people in dementia care and research.
