CEU Course Description
Cultural competence in healthcare settings represents a level of knowledge, skills, and tools available when providing care to patients of different cultures than the providers themselves. Culture refers to the language, beliefs, values, communication, race, ethnicity, religion, or social influences that make up a person’s life. Healthcare disparities, or inequities of care and outcomes, occur in the African American, Latino/Hispanic, Native American, Asian American, Alaska Native, and Pacific Islander communities compared to the greater United States population. This course will define the concept of cultural competence, discuss which populations are historically and contemporarily marginalized, offer effective communication strategies, and ultimately strive to improve healthcare outcomes among treatment from physical therapists and physical therapist assistants.
