Cultural Competency and Ethics for Healthcare Professionals
Cultural Competency and Ethics for Healthcare Professionals
Greater Oregon Behavioral Health, Inc. WEBINAR
Wed, May 12, 2021 @ 08:30 AM — Thu, May 13, 2021 @ 12:00 PM (PDT)
THIS EVENT IS 100% FREE!

Course Description

In today’s environment of rapidly changing demographics, health care providers encounter increasingly diverse patients. Patients from a variety of cultural backgrounds bring with them expectations, anxieties, fears and needs that may seem very unfamiliar to providers. To provide optimal care to ALL patients, providers must continue to improve the awareness, knowledge and skills needed to bridge the wide range of cultural differences their patients present. In these interactive sessions, participants will engage in a series of discussions and activities designed to improve their ability to bridge cultural differences in health care encounters. Topics will cover three main areas of content: participant self-awareness, participant knowledge and participant skills. The cultural agility model will be highlighted as an inclusive way to identify, honor and accommodate the cultural differences and similarities between providers and patients. The class will provide a frame of reference for understanding bias and cultural differences (your own and others) as well as providing tips and tools for delivering care to multicultural patients.


*This training follows the Cultural Responsiveness and Implicit Bias requirements set by CCO 2.0 and is on OHA’s Approved Cultural Competence training list. The webinar is approved by NASW & MHACBO for 6 credit hours and THW for 5.5 credit hours.
