Our focus for the Tāmaki Makaurau | Auckland PADA Seminar is on the perinatal wellbeing of our Asian community. We will cover the general emotional wellbeing and care of Asian women during the perinatal period, in particular, the unique challenges and strengths faced by Asian women and systemic issues surrounding Asian women accessing care.
These seminars provide professional development for those supporting families affected by mental illness related to pregnancy, childbirth and early parenthood. When participants leave each seminar, they will better understand how these topics impact families and have strengthened their knowledge and skills to help improve perinatal outcomes.
These seminars will be of particular value to:

About CALD in Aotearoa New Zealand
CALD in our eCALD® education programme refers to culturally and linguistically diverse groups who are migrants and refugees from Asian, Middle Eastern, Latin American and African (MELAA) backgrounds.
Cultural competence refers to the ability to communicate and interact effectively between cultures. Cultural competence comprises four components: cultural awareness, sensitivity, knowledge and skills.
With increasing cultural diversity of the population in New Zealand, our health workforce is increasingly likely to care for clients or interact with colleagues with language, experiences, beliefs and cultures different from their own.
The New Zealand Ministry of Health requires District Health Boards to provide services that acknowledge the diversity of cultures and ensure services are accessible, culturally appropriate, effective and safe. As well, the Health Practitioners Competence Assurance Act 2003 (HPCAA) requires registration authorities to set standards of clinical competence and cultural competence.
