The overarching themes introduced in the CBMCS training influence the framework for Health Equity and Multicultural Diversity Foundation training syllabus.
The syllabus expands to include cultural concepts beyond race and ethnicity. Participants are challenged to consider the impact of cultural values, practices and worldview at every phase of care, including the variations of personal, professional and social interactions. They are encouraged to apply the principles of cultural humility specifically during the engagement and assessment phases of care. CEs are available for licensed staff.
