Cultural Competency

Trainings Sponsorship

 

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
