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 FOUR: Best Practices for Equitable Health Care

This session will introduce two essential clinical competencies, often overlooked by clinicians and other practitioners, to ensure a culturally responsive clinical encounter that can help shape assessment, treatment and outcomes, including:

  • Strategies to work effectively with qualified medical interpreters (face-to-face and by phone)
  • Tools for the practitioner to explore the patient’s culturally determined beliefs around health and illness, through applying explanatory models of care

Interactive sessions will follow presentations by Vermont experts practicing in health care and qualified medical interpreters experienced in working with diverse populations in health care settings. Participants will gain knowledge and skills to incorporate practical tools to improve care quality and performance.
