CDC Webinar on Cultural Competency and Emergency Risk Communication – July 14

By: Mollie Melbourne

The CDC’s Clinician Outreach and Communication Activity (COCA) group is hosting a free webinar on cultural competency and emergency risk communication on July 14, 2011 at 2:00 PM ET.  Here are the details:

Racial and ethnic minorities are disproportionately impacted by disasters, and disparities that existed prior to the event are exacerbated following the event. Using a culturally and linguistically appropriate emergency risk communication framework in the context of a disaster can aid in the reduction of health disparities associated with disaster response and recovery. This COCA call will illustrate the importance of cultural competency in the everyday communication activities between clinicians and patients, and will discuss culturally competent emergency risk communication strategies that clinicians can use during any crisis.
