"If you are interested in learning more about diversity...

Currently on Open University, there is a free course entitled “Diversity and Differences in Communication”

Upon completion of the course members will be able to:

  • demonstrate an understanding of competing perspectives on issues of communication, difference and diversity
  • demonstrate an understanding of the ways in which issues of ethnicity, gender and disability impact on interpersonal communication in care services
  • apply ideas about communication and difference to everyday interactions in health and social care contexts
  • analyse the ways in which ideas about difference can both reflect and reproduce inequalities between groups in the context of care services
  • identify strategies for working with difference and diversity in the context of challenging discrimination in health and social care contexts."
