A fun activity to break the ice and get the group talking together.

1. Healthy women, strong communities
Flipchart for Aboriginal health and community workers, and health professionals working with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women.

2. Spreading the word
Flipchart designed for use by health professionals and educators working with women from Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD) communities.

Overcoming the barriers
Overcoming the Barriers is a workshop designed to highlight the barriers experienced by women with a disability in accessing breast and cervical screening services, and provides strategies for disability support workers to assist in overcoming these barriers.

The information and activities in the workshop are designed to inform participants about the role of Pap tests, breast awareness and mammograms in cancer prevention and early detection, in order that they can discuss these issues with the women with disabilities they work with and support.

The resource provides options for a full course (3-6 hours) or a basic course (1-3 hours). The full course is the preferred method of delivery.

A resource folder detailing how to run the workshop and the workshop PowerPoint presentation can be loaned to health professionals, who would like to deliver the workshop to disability support workers in their community.

Alternatively, PapScreen Victoria can deliver the resource as a full course (5 hours) to groups of 10 or more participants in metropolitan Melbourne.
