Webinar: The Importance of Cultural Competence – The Caregiver Connection

February 29 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Caregiver banner

Relationships with healthcare providers are an important part of the caregiving role. It gives us a sense of belonging and strengthens our interactions affecting positive change. But it is often difficult to connect with people when we do not understand their culture or background.

Cultural competency is knowledge and behaviour that enable caregivers and healthcare providers to interact respectfully in a manner that is mindful, open, and sensitive to differences we may not be familiar with. Join our webinar to:
• Learn more about cultural competency in healthcare settings and understand why this is important
• Explore the ways in which we see and respond to differences and how it impacts our interactions with those around us
• Examine barriers in healthcare that relate to the caregiving space
• Take away tips and strategies to foster culturally competent relationships in healthcare settings

Who should attend? For caregivers, clinicians, and health care providers who would like to learn more about the role of cultural competence in healthcare settings.
