Introduction: Increasingly, community aged care employees need to respond to multiple aspects of diversity to meet the care needs of older community members. Guidance to incorporate diversity into workplace education is an unmet need.
Materials and methods: A diversity education program was developed for the Australian context, based on a Diversity Conceptual Model. A focus group and semi-structured interviews were undertaken, after the diversity education was delivered, to explore participants’ thoughts and experiences of the education
and its impact on their practice. Data analysis was based on grounded theory, using constant comparison method.
Results and conclusion: The diversity education positively influenced knowledge, built on participants’ skill;and influenced participants’ care practice.
