Building Cultural Competence in Health and Social Services

Equity and Inclusion:

Cultural Competency in Health and Human Services 

Cultural competency is a best practice for valuing diversity, practicing inclusion and creating health equity. It equips us to successfully navigate the dynamics of difference, authentically partner with others, maximize creative potential and align our intent with our outcomes. Studies show that investing time and resources to organization wide cultural competency efforts is positively related to greater innovation, performance, problem solving, talent acquisition and market share.

 

How do we communicate effectively in a multicultural and multilingual environment?

How do we partner with a new patient or client population?  

How do we sustain a diverse workforce?

How do we develop interventions that are culturally responsive and effective?

 

CCHCP has 23 years of experience providing cultural competency training, community and organizational needs assessments, and consulting for a wide range of health and social service institutions around the country. We help organizations ensure health equity and quality patient-centered care through awareness, knowledge, and skills building.

Whether you are a large hospital system, government health agency, nonprofit organization, or a small community clinic, we look forward to working with you!

 

“Linguistically and culturally appropriate care has a direct impact on quality and safety, and is a growing issue that is not going to go away.”

– Paul M. Schyve, M.D., Senior Advisor, The Joint Commission
