ACMA SoCA Chapter DINE and LEARN

ACMA SoCA Dine and Learn

Please join ACMA Southern California for our annual Dine and Learn event:

Cultural Diversity and Ethics

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.

Course Objectives:

  • Define the cultural barriers that interfere with providing culturally respectful healthcare.
  • Learn the components of an ethnographic interview to evaluate the person’s cultural needs.
  • Discuss how implicit bias may be affecting our interactions.
  • Demonstrate communication techniques to improve culturally appropriate care.

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 >>>
