Diversity Matters

Safe and competent care is essential for positive patient outcomes, and cultural awareness is a vital link to compassionate and successful patient care relationships. You can provide better care when you understand your own cultural biases,
attitudes, and values.

Class participants will learn how to combine simple cultural assessment skills with culturespecific information to attending to patients. This workshop will use lecture, discussion, and vignette-based learning to help enhance understanding of how to provide care to patients from diverse backgrounds and cultures.
