Building a Multicultural Care Environment

Green Clock Hours: 1.50 - 1.75

American society has always been diverse, yet it was not until outcome studies demonstrated the need for change that healthcare and other services began shifting how they operate. The rapid cultural diversification of the United States has inevitably challenged traditional institutions and practices, including the delivery of healthcare services. Awareness of and sensitivity to cultural issues are critical to establishing a positive relationship with the person you are serving, as well as to the outcome of healthcare treatment. Unfortunately, persons of various races/ethnicities, cultural, and social identities are often underserved by the healthcare system and are less likely to seek out appropriate healthcare services.

Broadly, this course examines the factors that may contribute to the underutilization of healthcare services, as well as ways to improve cultural understanding and competency in healthcare treatment. More specifically, this course covers the significance of cultural diversity, demographics, as well as individual and cultural diversity factors. The information in this training proposes some helpful conceptual frameworks for embracing cultural considerations in healthcare.
