Cultural Intelligence in Healthcare

Developing Cultural Competence to deliver high quality personalised care for All patients

-a New workshop for Healthcare Managers

We are living in a multi-ethnic society, with 39% of NHS Staff from diverse backgrounds, and some cities in England reaching over 25% of their population from ethnic minorities. Recognising these demographic changes, healthcare providers are required to deliver high quality, personalised care for all - in treatment, prevention as well as health promotion. Recent NHS reviews have emphasised this approach to provide patient centred care, improve patient engagement and experience, as well as promote equality and access for minority groups. Delivering such optimal care requires good knowledge and understanding of diversity and cultural differences of patients. The application of this knowledge will help to deliver more effective engagement, focused services and better patient satisfaction for all, under various programmes such as- World Class Commissioning, High Quality Care for All , Leadership Development., etc.

5 reasons to attend this workshop

  • Improve knowledge and understanding of diverse patients. Increase Cultural Competence.
  • Understand how faith/ beliefs/values can affect health care & outcomes
  • Implement effective engagement, commissioning, consultation and health promotion strategies to diverse communities
  • Supports Management & Leadership Development, WCC, and Workforce Development programmes.
