The United States Census Bureau's projections indicate that minority Americans will make up 40 percent of the United
States population. As our society becomes more diverse, medical and mental healthcare practitioners are increasingly
challenged to prevent, treat and understand the etiology of illnesses in their patient populations. The patient centered care
model has begun to address this challenge by providing the theoretical
framework that advocates for improving practitioner-patient relationship,
access to care, and health outcomes. Cultural competence builds on
this framework by providing a guide to understanding the social
determinants affecting practitioner-patient relationship, access to care,
and health outcomes.
The Ecwiti Group, LLC is excited to support these initiatives by
presenting three cultural competency trainings for medical and mental
healthcare professionals. At these trainings, participants will receive a
comprehensive instruction in organizational, systemic, and clinical cultural competency; engage in dialogue with minority
patients about needs and concerns; and attend workshops that showcase the work of Health Ecwiti (Equity) Champions.
These trainings will take place at African American Museum in Philadelphia, 701 Arch St., Philadelphia, PA 19106 on
the following dates:
June 13, 2016
September 12, 2016
April 27, 2017
