Additional Staff Training in Cultural Competence in Health

Additional Staff Training in Cultural Competence in Health

During the last couple of weeks we have had two more staff training as a part of our program on Cultural Competence in Health in Jerusalem, together with the Jerusalem Foundation.

On May 6, 2010, we had a second training program for educational staff of Alyn Hospital. The JICC adapted a workshop originally aimed at medical staff for the specific needs of teachers in the hospital. The result, as reported by the participants at the end of the workshop, was excellent, with participants reporting that they were more aware of the cultural and linguistic needs of the people they serve.

A week later, on May 13, 2010, we focused on issues surrounding cultural competency in health care delivery to the medical staff of the Clalit HMO. Again, participants agreed that the workshop covered exactly what they needed for the inter-cultural challenges they meet.

It is positive feedback like this that lets us continue with these training workshops knowing that we are making a difference!
