Quality Care for Diverse Populations Videos
Quality Care for Diverse Populations is a web-based training program developed by the AAFP to assist physicians and other health care professionals in becoming more culturally proficient in the provision of care to their patients. The program includes five video vignettes depicting simulated physician-patient visits in an office setting as a means to explore ethnic and sociocultural issues. The series is intended to teach physicians how to work with interpreters, recognize why and when cultural factors may be a barrier to doctor-patient communication, identify health risks and health disparities for specific populations, identify stressors related to the process of immigration, and understand the importance of honoring patients' culture. This activity has been reviewed and is acceptable for up to 2.5 Prescribed credits by the American Academy of Family Physicians.
