Rural Cultural Competence Professional Development Training
September 25, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 3:30 pm UTC-4$20
Fri, September 25, 2020, 1:00 PM – 3:30 PM EDT
Rural Health Network’s Rural Cultural Competence training module is a broad overview of the determinants and disparities impacting rural individuals, families, and communities and an in-depth discussion about ways to evaluate programs and establish more culturally competent service delivery in rural areas.
Higher rates of poverty, older populations, barriers to accessing services, lack of privacy, and social and physical isolation are common aspects of rural life that influence values. Rural Health Network offers this professional development course to enhance the understanding of professionals working with rural clients on how to interact with and provide services in rural communities.
- To provide an understanding of the common characteristics of the rural people we serve.
- To enhance skills in service provision, communication, and successfully meeting needs of rural populations.
- To make available resources for community-based and clinical providers to measure, evaluate, and improve participants’ own individual, programmatic, and organizational rural cultural competence.
