Cultural Competency and Health Literacy General Resources

Overview

The Cultural Competency and Health Literacy (CCHL) Workgroup served as an integral group during the first few years of DSRIP. Due to Mount Sinai PPS’ shift in its clinical strategy, the CCHL Workgroup no longer meets. This page serves as a resource page for past materials produced by this workgroup. 

The goal of this workgroup was, to address health disparities and the significant barriers to patients’ access to care through patient and provider engagement strategies in order to better engage and improve the overall delivery of care to our Medicaid members. This workgroup collaborated closely with PPS leadership to cultivate shared understanding about the critical importance of cultural competency and health literacy to all aspects of patient care.

Past accomplishments include site champion events and educational webinars/videos on health and immigration topics and LGBTQ best practices in healthcare. Past materials can be viewed below.
