On behalf of Florida Department of Health’s Bureau of Chronic Disease Prevention, Cancer Program and Office of Minority Health
APRIL IS NATIONAL MINORITY HEALTH MONTH
Please join us for a special live webinar panel discussion in observance of Minority Health Month 2013 entitled: "Ethnic Diversity and Cultural Competency in Cancer Care"
Providing cancer care to members of different racial or ethnic groups and disadvantaged persons can pose tremendous challenges to healthcare providers. Members of the cancer care team must respect and be sensitive to issues related to a patient’s culture, race, gender, sexual orientation, and socioeconomic status while providing optimal cancer care.
Many professional associations have emphasized the need to provide culturally competent care; many have developed standards or guidelines for delivering culturally competent services to increasingly diverse patients and families. Effective cancer care is no longer possible without a working knowledge and understanding of a person’s or group’s culture and background.
