OHD & University of Michigan-Flint partner to bring Cultural Competence Training for Healthcare Providers in March

The Utah Department of Health (UDOH) Office of Health Disparities Reduction (OHD) in partnership with the University of Michigan-Flint (UMF) will offer an in-person training especially designed for health care providers (emphasis on nurses) to enhance cultural competencies and develop skills in meeting the needs of diverse patients, groups and communities. 

It is well known that a culturally competent health care workforce is needed to promote healthy lifestyles and reduce health disparities.  It is crucial for health care providers to communicate with their patients and understand what constitutes illness within the framework of their cultures in order to mutually decide upon care that is evidence based and culturally appropriate.

  1. Why is this workshop primarily for nurses, shouldn't you be more inclusive and invite medical students, PA students, and practicing MD and PA
