About CALD in New Zealand (from www.ecald.com/about-us/about-ecald)

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.
