Native American Cultural Competency Webinar Series: Cultural Sensitivity When Collecting Sensitive Data

  • Event Summary

    Are you interested in learning more about tribal communities and how to work with their tribal governments?

     

    The Mountain States Regional Health Equity Council (RHEC) aims to end health disparities in Colorado, Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Utah, and Wyoming. One of its main priority areas is to provide education and awareness of cultural and linguistic competency within the region. This year, the RHEC is hosting a webinar training series on the history of tribes and treaties, utilization of the National Standards of Culturally and Linguistically Appropriate Services (CLAS) and cultural sensitivity when working with tribal communities, and the impact of cultural needs assessments. Upon completion of this webinar, the participants will be able to accomplish the following from the specific tribal perspective:


    1. List three benefits of providing culturally and linguistic appropriate services
    2. Identify and understand the holistic healing approach, cultural norms, customs, and protocols of the Great Plains tribes
    3. Discuss effective strategies when working with the Native American population that can be shared with co-workers
    4. Enhance the relationship between healthcare provider and patient by building a culturally competent workforce
