This is a significant milestone in our commitment to making a positive impact on the lives of CALD communities in Australia. As a leading translation and multicultural communication provider, we understand how vital accessibility in healthcare and wellbeing services is, and we are proud to be one of the champions for this essential cause.

The Australian Bureau of Statistics estimates that in 2021, 27.6% of Australia’s population was born overseas. With a statistic that high, it is essential for all industries, such as public health, mental health care and health education, to ensure that they create content in-language to answer the community needs of Australia’s diverse population.

Breaking Down Barriers

Accessibility in healthcare goes beyond providing physical access to hospitals and clinics. It encompasses the broader goal of ensuring that every individual, regardless of their language, cultural background, or physical abilities, can access and receive high-quality healthcare services, including mental health services. For culturally diverse communities in Australia, this issue takes centre stage, as language and cultural differences often present formidable barriers to accessing healthcare.

Language Is No Longer a Barrier

One of the most significant challenges faced by individuals from multicultural backgrounds is language. Misunderstandings and miscommunications can have dire consequences in healthcare and clinical services settings. LEXIGO’s mission is to bridge these language gaps effectively. Through our translation and multicultural communication services, we facilitate clear and accurate communication between healthcare providers and patients who speak different languages.

Our team of skilled linguists ensures that patients can understand medical advice without any language-related obstacles. This enables healthcare providers to deliver safer and more effective care to multicultural communities nationally.

Cultural Sensitivity Matters

Cultural competence is another critical aspect of accessibility in healthcare. Understanding the cultural beliefs, practices, and preferences of patients is essential for providing care that is respectful and relevant. LEXIGO’s expertise on community health and our close connections with community leaders and community organisations can help empower healthcare professionals to navigate these complexities with ease.

By fostering cultural sensitivity and awareness, we help healthcare providers create a welcoming environment where patients from diverse backgrounds feel understood and respected. This not only improves patient satisfaction but also leads to better health outcomes.

A Partnership that Makes a Difference

Our partnership with the National Multicultural Health and Wellbeing Conference 2023 reinforces our dedication to enhancing accessibility in healthcare. We are excited to collaborate with like-minded organisations and professionals who share our passion for ensuring that healthcare services are accessible to all.

This conference provides an invaluable platform to exchange knowledge, ideas, and best practices in the field of multicultural healthcare. It’s an opportunity for us to learn from experts, showcase our commitment to accessibility, and connect with those who are working tirelessly to improve healthcare outcomes for CALD communities.

Join Us in Building a More Accessible Future

At LEXIGO, we firmly believe that everyone deserves equal access to healthcare, regardless of their background or abilities. We are honoured to be part of a conference that champions this cause, and we invite you to join us in building a more accessible future for all Australians.

Together, we can break down language and cultural barriers, ensuring that health care is accessible across Australia’s diverse population.

Stay tuned for updates on our journey with the National Multicultural Health and Wellbeing Conference, being held at the Sheraton Grand Sydney Hyde Park on 21-22 November. Let’s make a positive impact on the lives of multicultural communities in Australia.
