GUIDE: Planning and Implementing Cultural Competence


Source: National Center for Cultural Competence
Health and human service organizations are recognizing the need to enhance services for culturally and linguistically diverse populations. Assessing attitudes, practices, policies and structures of administrators and service providers is a necessary, effective and systematic way to plan for and incorporate cultural competence within an organization. Determining the needs, preferences and satisfaction of family members/consumers is an essential aspect of this process. The Maternal and Child Health Bureau (MCHB), through its Title V–Children With Special Health Care Needs programs (CSHCN), supports self-assessment as a tool that assists with the development of State Block Grant applications. The MCHB also emphasizes self-assessment as a key strategy to address Goal III, Objective 3.9—To increase the percentage of states that implement culturally competent policies, practices and procedures to 100%.
