From: U.S. Department of Health and Human Services: Think Cultural Health (TCH)
Think Cultural Health (TCH), sponsored by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office of Minority Health, is dedicated to advancing health equity at every point of contact. With growing concerns about health inequities and the need for health care systems to reach increasingly diverse patient populations, cultural competence has become more and more a matter of national concern.
The TCH has announced recently the release of the updated Physicians Practical Guide for Culturally Competent Care e-learning program. In April 2013, the National CLAS Standards were re-released after undergoing a two-year enhancement initiative. The content of this program has been updated to include the updated National CLAS Standards, more interactivity, and updated literature and references.
A Physician's Practical Guide to Culturally Competent Care Web site offers CME/CE credit and equips health care professionals with awareness, knowledge, and skills to better treat the increasingly diverse U.S. population they serve.
