Description

Providence Inclusion Network is a free opportunity to jump start the transition of postsecondary students from school to the workplace! We highly value students from all backgrounds, ethnicities, and walks of life. Come to learn more about relevant topics in health care, increase exposure to professionals and career knowledge, and gain the advantage of finding jobs at Providence. Consecutive attendance is encouraged, but not required. Students from all majors/programs are welcome to attend. This is appropriate for any interested college student.

All events will be from 4:00 PM-6:00 PM, and light refreshments will be served.

Cultural Competence in Health Care

At Providence, cultural competence includes providing interpreters for patients and their families who don’t speak English; making special accommodations for people with disabilities; respecting how our patients define “family” when planning aftercare; and seeking to understand how various cultures view death and dying.

Health care organizations are promoting cultural competence because this purposeful approach will bring the most benefit to patients. Acknowledging our patients' culture and belief systems eases early access to care, improves treatment compliance and helps prevent illness.
