​Preferred registration deadline: September 14th

Assistant Professor of Radiology

Washington University School of Medicine

In nearly every setting, social workers are called on to support clients who do not share their native language or culture. 
This workshop will help you increase your skills, by providing strategies and discussing challenges towards providing culturally and linguistically appropriate care. 

The National Standards for Culturally and Linguistically Appropriate Services in Health and Health Care will be used as the scaffolding for class discussions.  We will consider the implications of the standard of providing effective, equitable, understandable, and respectful quality care and services that are responsive to diverse cultural health beliefs and practices, preferred languages, health literacy, and other communication needs.  Class members will have the opportunity to identify
the strengths and limits of their current practice settings’ approaches and problem-solve challenging situations together.

Class size is limited to 45.

$50 General Admission
