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. The current Cultural Competency training offered is Hinge Points in Cross Cultural Health Communication, which discusses points of interaction, cultural assumptions, and skills of cultural effectiveness.
