Cultural Responsiveness in Clinical Practice

Cultural Responsiveness in Clinical Practice 

As a healthcare professional, you have undoubtedly worked with individuals from many different cultures. However, you may or may not be aware of the impact that a person’s culture can have on overall health and well-being. In this course, you will learn how culturally responsive practice can have a positive effect on your service delivery.

This training introduces you to several models to enhance your communication with individuals from a range of diverse backgrounds. You will also learn about cultural barriers to treatment, several health belief systems, and factors to consider in a culturally responsive assessment. It is worth noting that culture is always at play, regardless of the healthcare provider’s capacity to recognize and/or respond to it appropriately.
