Event description

Description

UMPQUA HEALTH ALLIANCE presents Dr. Clifford Coleman, MD, MPH, Associate Professor of Family Medicine and Clinical Thread Director for Professionalism, Ethics, and Communication at Oregon Health & Science University School of Medicine, to teach providers who work with clients the tools for "best practice" when working with a diverse population of clients (older folks, clients living in poverty, lack of education, literacy, addiction/abuse, socioeconomic backgrounds, race, sexual orientation, etc.). He helps educate the providers on what culture truly is, what cross-cultural encounters look like, how to provide culturally responsive care, practice cultural humility, watch out for implicit and unconscious biases, microaggressions, tools and strategies for bridging cultures and enabling us to accept one another and treat patients with the best care possible.


This presentation begins with a 2 hour informative presentation you will find very interesting and engaging. The second half of this presentation includes a 2 hour didactic workshop where we will really see what implicit biases we carry with us into our work environments and will help bring cultural competency awareness to the forefront of how we as providers, treat our patients. This will also include tools and strategies for how to provide exceptional care to our most vulnerable clients.


CME application in process; 4 CMEs will be provided by Bay Area Hospital.


Executive Sponsorship provided by Umpqua Health Alliance in association with Cow Creek Band of Umpqua Tribe of Indians.


Light snacks and beverages provided.


Seating is limited! There are only 210 spaces available, so please register as soon as possible.
