    About this Webinar

    In order to serve an increasingly diverse patient population, many organizations have implemented cultural competency models. However, the current model many providers use is insufficient. This approach can create a false sense of understanding a culture, perpetuate biases, and promote stereotypes. Rather than striving for cultural competence, organizations should aspire to cultural humility.

    In this webinar, we’ll explore how a cultural humility model can have a significant impact on building trust, supporting patients’ engagement in their care, and improving outcomes. We’ll discuss four steps organizations can take to make the shift from cultural competence to cultural humility.

    Things You’ll Learn:

    • Limitations of traditional approaches to cultural competency
    • Benefits of the cultural humility model
    • A four part framework for engendering cultural humility
