1 Hour Webinar Training with James Figueiredo, MEd.

PRESENTATIONThere is strong evidence that culturally responsive care improves client/patient satisfaction that leads to greater engagement in care, improved adherence to treatment and better health outcomes. This webinar will focus on improving our ability to interact effectively with people of different cultures to help ensure the needs of all community members are addressed. We will look beyond just race and ethnicity to include gender, sexual orientation, disability, religion, socio-economic status, and geographic location. The webinar will feature a segment dedicated to creating greater awareness and forming knowledge and familiarity with the special issues and needs of people from diverse populations who struggle with substance use disorder. Participants will work individually and together to identify concrete actions for creating a workplace environment that is more equitable, diverse, and inclusive.

As a result of this webinar participants will be able to:

  1. Provide a basic understanding of cultural competence. 
  2. Increase understanding of the framework and rationale for culturally responsive care. 
  3. Examine individual and organizational barriers to cultural competence.
  4.  Build understanding of cultural perspectives on substance use.
