About

What is
Cultural Competency Training?

  • Cultural competency training offers an opportunity to increase one's cultural humility, awareness, and sensitivity.

  • Every person is an expert in their lived experience. By learning how to respect individuals from all backgrounds and their lived experiences, providers can provide equitable quality care and effectively address the needs of any patient they may see. Our cultural competency training will cover identity and self-expression, unconscious bias, racial discrimination, gender disparities, and more.

What is Cultural Humility?

Cultural humility is the lifelong process of self-reflection and self-critique whereby individuals not only learn about another's culture but start with an examination of her/his/their own beliefs and cultural identities.

Nevada Cultural Competency training is nationally recognized with award

Since its inception, Nevada Cultural Competency has worked to address healthcare discrepancies amongst historically marginalized patient populations, developing community programs centered around cultural humility that consider patient identity and experiences to achieve the best outcomes.

 

In 2022, Nevada Cultural Competency became a nationally recognized program after the Health Care Leadership Council's Redefining Healthcare award. According to Debbie Witchey, the Healthcare Leadership Council's Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer, the program was recognized for its approach to meeting community needs through innovative community partnerships and "bolstering cultural competency and ensuring health professionals can interact successfully with patients, the result is better outcomes for patients and more satisfaction for the healthcare workforce."

"People of different religions and cultures live side by side in almost every part of the world, and most of us have overlapping identities which unite us with very different groups. We can love what we are, without hating what – and who – we are not. We can thrive in our own tradition, even as we learn from others, and come to respect their teachings."

—Kofi Annan, Former Secretary-General of the United Nations
