What Evidence Is There?

The evidence base for proving the effectiveness of cultural interventions and training is still emerging.  More needs to be done.  Our conference provides a forum for the development, dissemination, and implementation of tools to aid both healthcare practitioners and researchers who work with diverse populations.

“Ultimately, people of color may face barriers that our standard quality improvement tools may not fully address. Hypothetically, and with some preliminary evidence, it seems that quality improvement efforts will need to embed components of cultural competence to truly achieve equity. This process will require creativity and innovation.”
