About the OCCC
The Outcomes Of A Culturally Competent Curriculum (OCCC) is a tool designed to evaluate the existence of cultural concepts taught in a health professions’ curriculum. It is specifically intended for the following health professions: Nursing, Medicine, Pharmacy, Dentistry, Physical Therapy, and Occupational Therapy. With modifications, the OCCC can be used with other allied health professions.
The OCCC is a tool to evaluate the existence of cultural concepts taught in specific courses in a heath professions’ curriculum. It is based Campinha-Bacote’s model, The Process of Cultural Competemility in the Delivery of Healthcare Services, and is comprised of behavioral item/outcomes addressing the six constructs of cultural humility, cultural awareness, cultural desire, cultural knowledge, cultural skill, and cultural encounters.
Development Of The Instrument:
The OCCC was developed by Dr. Campinha-Bacote in 2008 while working as a consultant on several HRSA grants whose objective was to evaluate nursing curriculums for the presence/absence of cultural content.
Obtaining Permission To Use OCCC© In a Study/Project: The OCCC is currently undergoing psychometric testing and therefore is not currently available for purchase/use. On-sight and off-sight consultation by Dr. Campinha-Bacote is being offered to those who would like to evaluate the existence of cultural concepts taught in their curriculum.
