Presentation Title:
Enhancing Cultural Competency in Health Service Delivery Systems

Presentation Overviews:

This workshop in enhancing cultural competency is designed as an introduction and overview of the best practices in the delivery of high-quality care for diverse populations.  In alignment with the National Standards for Culturally and Linguistically Appropriate Services (CLAS) in Health Care and the Substance Abuse Prevention and Control’s (SAPC) vision for ensuring culturally appropriate care, this workshop will emphasize the rationale, empirical groundwork, and implementation of effective and equitable care for culturally diverse populations.  Providers in substance use prevention and treatment, case management, and other related areas will conduct a self-assessment to identify areas of strengths and weaknesses.  Participants will be offered models and strategies to facilitate the provision of services that are developmentally, culturally, and linguistically appropriate.

By the conclusion of the lecture, participants should be able to:

  1. Describe the impact of inequitable care and disparities on diverse populations within the context of health care provision.
     
  2. Conduct a self-assessment of cultural competence and will be able to identify an area of further enhancement.
     
  3. Develop an attainable, observable set of strategies in cultural competence they will commit to implementing within the scope of their service provision.
