Cultural Competency Training
AmeriHealth Caritas New Hampshire is committed to promoting education on and awareness of culturally and linguistically appropriate services (CLAS), and to combating the effects of low health literacy on the health status of our members.
The Office of Minority Health, part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services: offers accredited continuing education for providers:
- A Physician’s Guide to Culturally Competent Care
(accredited for physicians, nurses, nurse practitioners, and pharmacists).
- Culturally Competent Nursing Care: A Cornerstone of Caring
(accredited for nurses and social workers).
Both programs are accredited for continuing education credits and available online at no cost to participants.
