This course is intended to cultivate a student's knowledge and skill necessary to effectively communicate and interact with culturally diverse populations in the health care setting. Students gain an understanding of the process in developing cultural competence as a means of responding effectively to the ethnic and racial demographic changes challenging our health care system, identify potential social, political, and economic determinants of health care disparities; and understand the importance of providing culturally and linguistically appropriate healthcare services with accreditation and regulatory agencies.
