AusACPDM Listening and Sharing session: 31st August 2022

First Nations cultural adaptation of the LEAP-CP early Screening Program

31st August 4:30pm Australian EST

Join us in our free listening and sharing session.

Topic information: Early screening programs can identify infants who are ‘on track’ with their development and those who require extra support to grow strong. The LEAP-CP early screening study is a culturally adapted program embedded in hospital services in North QLD and aims to offer First Nations babies and families early movement and learning checks over the first year of life to support infant development. The cultural adaptation and modification of the screening program utilises a participatory action research model involving community consultation and engagement, targeting key components of cultural safety and sensitivity, consultation and co-design, capacity building and sustainability.  This session may be of interest to clinicians and researches working with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander infants and families.

Speakers: Leanne Mick-Ramsamy, Carly Luke

The session will be facilitated by: Professor Ros Boyd
