Is your organisation working to meet the new priorities under the National LGBTIQ+ Ageing and Aged Care Strategy? Our ageing population is arguably the most important transition facing LGBTIQ+ and wider communities in the coming years.
Whether you are an aged care facility or health care provider, Meridian can help you identify changes to policies and provide staff training to assist in making both your workforce and organisation truly inclusive.
This nationally funded program provides a limited number of free one-day workshops aimed at improving and strengthening LGBTIQ+ inclusive service delivery for aged care sector workers and organisations providing aged care services.
Individual training can be customised to meet the needs of your organisation and staff teams and be delivered either onsite or at one of our partner agencies.
This module includes:
- Understanding LGBTIQ+ communities
- Defining the current ageing experience for LGBTIQ+ people
- Social stigma and assumptions
- Issues for LGBTIQ+ seniors
- Medical considerations
- Government policy
- Inclusive practice
Duration: 3 - 7 Hours
