Community engagement

ACMA is pursuing ways to give back to the community, such as to

  1. Represent the health and medical needs of the ethnic Chinese community.
  2. Support the learning of the Chinese language through CLTASA and matriculation awards.
  3. Utilise the language and social skills of our members to assist new migrants.
  4. Disseminate health and basic medical information to these new migrants.
  5. Involve ourselves in trade missions to China to address the health needs of their ageing population
  6. Improve the knowledge and expertise of our members.
  7. Engagement with Multicultural SA. Do check out their website for more information on upcoming festivals, events and opportunities.

ACMAV survey on Advance Care Planning

Dear Sir/ Madam,

My name is Sok and I am a final year medical student and a member of Australian Chinese Medical Association Victoria (ACMAV). I am currently doing my research at the Advance Care Planning department (Austin Health), looking at the knowledge, attitudes and needs of Chinese-Australians with regards to Advance Care Planning (ACP).

We had strong support from ACMAV and have successfully surveyed the Chinese doctors of the association. As this is a national project funded by the Department of Health and Ageing, we would like to extend the survey invitation to all Chinese doctors from various states in Australia. Your participation in this Health Professional survey will be very helpful in assisting us with ACP resource development for Chinese-Australians.

We sincerely hope to receive the support of ACMA (South Australia) with this project, by helping us send out this survey link to your members: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/ACP-CALD

If there are any questions or if you are able to help please feel free to contact myself at soky@student.unimelb.edu.au<mailto:soky@student.unimelb.edu.au>. Alternatively, you may also contact my supervisor, Scott Fraser at 03 9496672 or scott.fraser@austin.org.au<mailto:scott.fraser@austin.org.au>.

Warm regards,
