Cultural Competency Training for Health Care Providers
PALS for Health provides cultural competency training to health and social service providers serving in areas with a significant or growing number of limited English proficient (LEP) individuals. The training varies in length and can be tailored to meet the needs of specific institutions.
Our training offers an informative and interactive overview of topics including but not limited to gender, generational differences, health literacy, traditional healing practices and various cultural customs. Immigration history and current census trends are reviewed for specific communities including but not limited to the Latino community (including sub-groups) and Asian and Pacific Islander communities (including sub-groups). Other specific sub-group discussions will be facilitated upon request
In the health realm cultural norms and practices significantly impact health seeking behaviors. PALS for Health's cultural competency training includes effective methods of facilitating provider/patient communication. It should be noted that our cultural competency training is relevant for all areas of human behaviors - not just health care.
The training also offers helpful hints on how to develop the language capacity of your workforce and how to locate and utilize trained professional interpreters. Some past participants include Department of Managed Health Care, Children's Hospital of Los Angeles, AIDS Project Los Angeles, Garden Grove Hospital, and Methodist Hospital.
