Inclusion Academy – Culturally Responsive Care: Patient Bias, It’s a Two-Way Street, hosted by Project ECHO

March 9, 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm

Learn about patient bias in our first session of a three-part series hosted by Project ECHO. This session aims to improve the quality of care and reduce health disparities in underserved populations.

Continued education and provider ongoing education in culturally responsive care has been identified as one of the most important ways to combat racial and ethnic disparities in healthcare. Culturally and Linguistically Appropriate Services is the framework in which a provider considers the socio-cultural characteristics that may impact a patient’s care and health-related outcomes, and ultimately, the tailoring of health care delivery to appropriately meet a patient’s needs. Join us as we generate solutions and guidelines that address these vital topics in healthcare and inform policy creation and inclusive practices.

This three-session series aims to address diverse population needs by reducing provider biases and increasing provider awareness and responsiveness to cultural norms. Future sessions will focus on alternative and integrated medicine (May 11), and patients with disabilities (Aug. 10).
