Primer on Cultural Competency and Health Literacy:  The Cultural Competency and Health Literacy Primer is intended to serve as a free resource guide for health professional educators responsible for training the current and future healthcare workforce. The Primer was co-created by the Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene’s Office of Minority Health and Health Disparities, and the University of Maryland College Park School of Public Health and the Herschel S. Horowitz Center for Health Literacy. The Primer was designed to provide users with tools and resources to help guide the integration of cultural and health literacy competencies into everyday healthcare practice. (link)

Assessing Change: Evaluating Cultural Competence Education and Training: Authored by the Association of American Medial Colleges in 2015, the intent of this guide is to advance evaluation and research efforts by providing resources for educators and researchers engaged in understanding the outcomes and impact of cultural competence education and training. Based on findings from an extensive literature review and a panel of experts in medical education and cultural competence, the need to strengthen existing efforts in evaluating culturally responsive education and training was identified. While other areas in medical education and training deserve similar emphasis, continued health care inequities underscore the importance of advancing this area of work. The guide features the following resources for educators and researchers: (1) an overview of studies, which includes surveys and assessments of knowledge, skills, and attitudes related to cultural competence, developed into an inventory to provide easy access to existing tools; (2) tools for assessing survey characteristics to determine quality and psychometric properties of existing surveys, and (3) sample evaluation frameworks to bring together curriculum and evaluation planning. https://www.aamc.org/download/427350/data/assessingchange.pdf              

Standards of Practice for Culturally Competent Nursing Care Executive Summary: A task force of the Expert Panel for Global Nursing and Health of the American Academy of Nursing, along with members of the Transcultural Nursing Society, has developed a set of standards for cultural competence in nursing practice. The aim of this project was to define standards that can be universally applied by nurses around the world in the areas of clinical practice, research, education, and administration, especially by nurses involved in direct patient care. The document includes a Preface and 12 Standards:

Standard 1. Social Justice
Standard 2. Critical Reflection
Standard 3. Knowledge of Cultures
Standard 4. Culturally Competent Practice
Standard 5. Cultural Competence in HealthCare Systems and Organizations
Standard 6. Patient Advocacy and Empowerment
Standard 7. Multicultural Workforce
Standard 8. Education and Training in Culturally Competent Care
Standard 9. Cross Cultural Communication
Standard 10. Cross Cultural Leadership
Standard 11. Policy Development
Standard 12. Evidence-Based Practice and Research

For each standard, a definition, supporting rationale, and numerous suggestions for implementation are provided. A glossary of terms is appended. All standards are based on the concepts of social justice and human rights, as defined by the United Nations and the International Council of Nurses. These concepts are manifested at a systems or governmental level by political, economic, and social policies that exhibit impartiality and objectivity. All task force members have experience working with peoples from a variety of cultures throughout the world. In developing this document, the task force reviewed more than 50 documents on cultural competence published by nursing and health care organizations worldwide. In addition, an on-line survey solicited comments from nurses in many countries. Responses from nurses representing a variety of settings and educational backgrounds were incorporated into the final document. Every attempt was made to develop standards that can be used globally.

Cultural Competence Education for Students in Medicine and Public Health (2012): The Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) and ASPH sponsored a Joint Expert Panel on Cultural Competence Education to develop a set of core cultural competencies appropriate for, though not limited to, medical and public health students. These competencies aim to help ensure the development and delivery of appropriate health care and population health services and policies and for a growing diverse population that includes those currently medically underserved. The competencies are designed to enable faculty in medical schools and graduate schools/programs of public health to standardize curricula, benchmark student performance, and prepare graduates for culturally competent practice. The panel additionally provided recommendations for embedding cultural competence education within and across curricula of medicine and public health, highlights of exemplary case studies, and a road map for the future. https://members.aamc.org/eweb/upload/Cultural%20Competence%20Education_revisedl.pdf

The second clip offers a historic context, poetry readings by SF State public health students and an analysis of privilege and power. The third segment is about Cultural Humility in Community Based Participatory Research and Education and features the work of the Chinese Progressive Association and their academic partners. Lastly, the film ends in segment 4 with a reflection on peace, embodied images of nature and a quote by André Lorde.
