We would like to draw your attention to a special issue of the journal Culture, Medicine and Psychiatry that focuses on the issue of cultural competence in healthcare.
The issue examines how concepts of cultural competence are operationalised in teaching interventions. Of particular interest to our international readership is the inclusion of a case study from Canada and an essay from a German clinical educator, illustrating how cultural competency approaches, which originated in the US, can be adapted to different countries and settings.
Bangor University is participating in a three-year project on how visual arts can contribute to the health and well-being of people with dementia. The multi-disciplinary research will explore how visual arts change, sustain and catalyse community cultures, beliefs, attitudes and behaviours to create dementia friendly communities.
The project is currently looking for a Study Manager/Research Fellow with experience of multi-centre research studies, project management and team leadership, and quantitative, qualitative and observational research methods.
The closing date for applications is June 13th 2013. For more information click here.
