Abstract

Background: CAMHS practitioners must be skilled in transcultural communication in order to meet the needs of their culturally diverse clients.

Method: This article reports on the use of an online cultural competence course1 in promoting transcultural communication with CAMHS practitioners.

Results: A qualitative analysis of practitioners’ course assignments indicated that new learning had occurred in relation to transcultural communication. Moreover, many practitioners reported actual changes to their clinical practice as a result.

Conclusions: The course is considered to be an example of good practice for developing practitioners’ awareness of transcultural communication, and prompting positive practices that may contribute to a more culturally competent CAMHS.
