Cultural Competency Training

Becoming culturally competent is a process of understanding one's own belief system and being respectful of others. Culture encompasses religion, class, gender, race, ethnicity, language, education, and many other elements. Let us help you engage your staff to build cultural awareness and competency!

The NH Minority Health Coalition and SNHAHEC join together to offer cultural competency training opportunities. These trainings range from one to eight hours in length, and can be tailored to accommodate your practice, service area, and staff.

Examples of cultural competency trainings include:

  • Working with Interpreters
  • Simulated Patients from Diverse Cultures
  • Class: A Hidden Culture
  • Cross Cultural Skills in Health Care
  • Cross Cultural Skills in Behavioral Health
  • Culture and Cultural Competency
  • Clinical Case Studies Across Cultures
  • Culture Forums
  • Introduction to Health Literacy
  • Building Cultural Effectiveness
