CEU Course Description
Failure to properly address cultural differences creates and maintains mistrust and other potential conflicts between service providers and potential clients, further contributing to low quality of care and poor health outcomes. Thus, delivering culturally competent services remains a goal and a highly promising approach to promoting positive outcomes among racially and ethically diverse groups and to ultimately reducing health disparities. This CEU course provides an overview of cultural competence for health care professionals serving children and families from diverse ethnic and racial backgrounds.
