Cultural Competency: Providing Meaningful Care to a Diverse Patient Population

We all possess innate biases that may cause us to treat patients differently without us even being aware of it. At the end of this course, you should be able to take a second look at instances in your patient interactions that might cause misunderstandings. It is important to be able to identify ways that we can, within ourselves, our hospitals and our healthcare systems, reduce disparities in healthcare.

Target Audience

All physicians, pharmacists and other interested healthcare professionals.

Learning Objectives

  • Identify cultural variations that may limit communication and relationship building with patients.
