Launch of series of multicultural videos

Two Turkish speaking women in a garden setting having a conversation

We have been excited to assist with the development of a series of fantastic new captioned videos featuring Vietnamese, Arabic and Turkish community members talking about their own advance care planning experiences. The videos are funded by COORDINARE – South Eastern NSW PHN – and are a collaboration with Multicultural Communities Council of Illawarra (MCCI) and Beyond Empathy with ACPA’s support.

Share the videos and other language resources with your patients or residents, and help start the conversation.
