This online course explores emerging populations, specifically in the context of diabetes care. People of different cultural backgrounds may have different expectations, beliefs, and goals in their approach to healthcare. Being culturally competent means being respectful of and responsive to differences in diverse population groups.
The course consists of a presentation by Dr. Oluwaranti Akiyode, with breaks for a few multiple-choice questions, followed by a case-study activity. Afterward, you will take a short post-learning assessment and complete a course evaluation.
Participants will be able to describe effective strategies to provide culturally competent education and care to African American, Latino, Asian, and other emerging populations.
Upon completion of this online course, participants will be able to:
- Describe the cultural influences on health in African American, Latino, Asian, and other emerging populations.
- Identify social determinants of health that are barriers to the treatment adherence among minority populations.
- Recognize strategies for effective patient-provider communication among minority populations.
