John Mormanis, PhD & Randa M. Kutob, MD MPH: Improving Your Practice and Advocacy of Cultural Competence through the Skills-based ASCN Model
1. Describe the ASCN (Ask, Share, Compare, and Negotiate) model and how this skills-based approach to culturally competent care can be applied to your clinical setting.
2. Demonstrate familiarity with the Culturally and Linguistically Appropriate Services (CLAS) standards of the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Office of Minority Health and how they impact the ethical responsibilities of medical service providers.
3. Define “health disparities” and how they disproportionately affect ethnic and racial minority populations in the United States.
4. Recognize that “ethnicity,” “race,” and “culture” are fluid categories that overlap and also include other aspects of identity that can include religion, sexual orientation, gender, class, etc.
