Guest Lecturer – Cultural Competence

Current Research Projects:

Currently undertaking Master of Philosophy Thesis.  The aim of this study is to adapt an existing overseas cultural compliance questionnaire and see if it measures patients’ views about how their physiotherapist responds to their cultural needs within a New Zealand context.  To date, there are no known assessment tools in New Zealand to accurately measure the level of a physiotherapist’s cultural competence.
