Cultural Competence and Humility in Healthcare Training
Cultural competence is the ability to understand and interact effectively with people from different cultures, backgrounds and experiences. Recognizing one’s own cultural beliefs, values and biases is also part of developing cultural competence.
As organizations become more diverse, cultural competence is taking on new relevance. And in some states cultural competence training is required for licensed healthcare professionals. Organizations that foster cultural competence can benefit from better teamwork and collaboration, more effective problem solving, higher employee engagement and customer satisfaction, among other positive outcomes. And culturally-aware individuals are more likely to recognize and address biases (conscious and unconscious) and microaggressions — barriers to diversity and inclusion that can lead to discrimination.
As part of an organization’s efforts to create a more inclusive and welcoming workplace, cultural competence training helps move the needle. Everyone can benefit from greater awareness and empathy for the experiences and cultures of coworkers, customers and others they engage with, inside and outside of the workplace.
Cultural Competence and Humility
This 20-minute training for healthcare workers gives learners an understanding of what cultural competency and cultural humility are, and why they matter. In addition to providing practical knowledge, the training also offers valuable inspiration for improved interactions in the workplace and in life in general. This course does not meet any continued education requirements that may be required for medical professionals.
