Culturally and linguistically diverse women
BreastScreen Queensland is active across all communities and involves representatives from culturally and linguistic groups in its planning to ensure communication and services are appropriate.
Our staff participate in a wide variety of cultural events and festivals, such as Italiafest and Paniyiri Greek Festival, to keep health messages top of mind and to help break down the barriers to having a breastscreen.
Key initiatives include:
- Resources translated into 20 languages
- Radiographer translations
- Procedure DVD
- Group bookings
- Education and information sessions provided by a health professional
- After hour appointments and specially arranged service closures
- Translators are available
Having a breastscreen:
Not sure how to go about booking a breastscreen or what happens when you have one? Follow Shan from the time she books her appointment to having her breastscreen and getting the results. This film clip has been translated into Arabic, Vietnamese and Chinese.
