Cultural Diversity and Ethics
Speaker: Viki Kind

We are in a unique profession as we focus both on the decisions and care within the healthcare setting as well as how the person will do in the short-term and long-term at home. Our practice is enhanced when we have greater insight into and respect for the person’s culture, religion, sexual orientation, ethnicity, etc. Attendees will learn how to do an ethnographic interview, how diversity within and across cultures affects decision making, and how our own perspective may be influencing our practice.

Please stay tune for info on the upcoming DINE and LEARN!!!

ACMA recently established a transitions of care standards framework that applies to all health care settings to foster effective, high quality and efficient care transitions. Every standard presented describes both the structure and the services required to meet that standard. The standards help organizations assess, quantify and identify gaps in their current care transition work plan. This framework allows an organization to evaluate return on investment of care transitions efforts as a mechanism to reduce utilization and enhance quality and patient experience (value-based care ROI). Assess your team today. Learn More >>>
