Event description
A 5-PART PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT SERIES ON QUALITY AND EQUITABLE HEALTH CARE IN VERMONT

About this event

What is health equity and why does its attainment matter in a state with predominantly white and rural residents and practitioners? How does discrimination (even unintentional) in American health care effect health inequities and health disparities experienced by minority and other underserved populations? This series will present:

  • Why quality health care must be equitable care;
  • How ignoring racial and ethnic health disparities is costly; and
  • How culturally and linguistically responsive practices are a necessary component to achieve a more equitable health care system.

In this 5-part professional development series, we will candidly address these and related questions and offer interventions and strategies that reduce the impacts of discrimination and biased care.

SESSION 5: Building and Cultivating Culturally Effective Organizations

This session will introduce participants to the Culturally Effective Organizations (CEOrgs) Framework, a national roadmap to guide health care organizations to improve capacity and effectiveness in providing equitable care and services. Participants will:

  • Learn how to distinguish individual, collective and organizational level cultural competence.
  • Identify organizational, structural and clinical strategies to implement culturally appropriate policies and practices.
