Promoting Culturally Sensitive Health Care

Return home

The Quality Interactions® clinical program aims to increase awareness and knowledge of racial and ethnic disparities in health care; and the importance of effective cross-cultural care.  The programs also provide health care professionals with tools and skills to more effectively communicate with and deliver quality clinical and cross-cultural care to patients from diverse backgrounds.

Learning Objectives
After completing a clinical program, you should be able to:

  • Discuss how cultural competence is important to the delivery of high-quality health care services to patients.
  • Outline the social and cultural issues that are most relevant in the care of diverse patient populations.
  • Communicate effectively across cultures.
  • Develop appropriate management strategies that take into account patients' cultural perspectives and preferences.
