Communities of Practice
With support from The California Endowment, the Your Voice initiative of DiversityRx sponsors Communities of Practice (CoP) for health care professionals, policymakers, advocates, researchers, and others who work in the field of cultural and linguistically competent health care. The first five CoPs recently completed their formal meeting schedule. They continue to meet informally through their private email discussion lists, direct email, and phone calls.
Each CoP had 10-15 members and met for 6-12 months on the following topics:
- Cultural competence training
- Policy for state-level policy-makers and advocates
- Collecting and using demographic data to improve care and reduce health disparities
- CLAS management issues for those implementing and managing CLAS and diversity programs
- Cultural patient support
We plan to convene new Communities of Practice and Peer Learning Networks after our national conference in October 2010. To stay informed about these new groups, please become a member and check off the Email Updates choice on the form.
