NNLM CONNECTions Webinar: Cultural Competence and Its Effect on Healthcare

Posted Nov 21, 2018 by Franda Liu
Category: National

As a health care provider, it is important to know your community and the culture of the community. How you respond to certain situations can impact the health of the community. While cultural competence is important within underserved communities, it is also important in providing care to mainstream communities as well.  We will discuss the terms cultural competence and cultural humility and the implications of these terms.

 

Join the NNLM South Central Region webinar on December 12th. No registration is required. More information at: https://nnlm.gov/scr/professional-development/connections.
