Culturally appropriate health care may improve the quality and potentially reduce the cost of care for a diverse array of patients—and can contribute to the elimination of racial and ethnic health disparities. Over the last decade policymakers have explored options to increase cultural competency among health care providers. The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, for example, requires federal loan repayment preference be given to individuals who have cultural competency training or experience.  This webinar will review best practices for improving cultural competency among a state’s health care workforce.
