Developing Cultural Competence

Addressing the health needs of ethnic minorities living in Limerick, Clare and N. Tipperary

The HSE West will launch the report ‘Multicultural Health, An assessment of Health and Personal Social Service Needs relating to Ethnic Minority Groups within the Mid-West Area (Limerick, Clare, North Tipperary)’ on 14th May in Georgian House & Garden, 2 Pery Square, Limerick. The report, which is the result of a wide spread one year regional and local consultation process, is to be launched by Bernard.

“Alvina’s presentation to the Credit Union Manager’s Association (C.U.M.A.) on managing cultural diversity was one of our most meaningful, useful and well received programmes in recent years. Alvina’s presentation showed a keen understanding of the unique nature of credit unions, and of the challenges of cultural diversity. She delivered her presentation and interacted with the large group of Managers present with insight, understanding and humour. The success of her interaction with our Managers is best measured by the numbers of people who came up to her immediately after the session to thank her, and the number of Managers who, afterwards, indicated to us that they would like to have Alvina back at a future stage.
I would, without hesitation, recommend Alvina to other organisations and businesses.”
