Workshop Summary

An increased focus on preventive medicine and dynamic new advances in medical technology has successfully increased life expectancy and improved overall health for a large number of Americans. However, not all Americans are benefitting equally. There are continuing disparities in the burden of illness and death experienced by African Americans, Hispanics Americans, Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders, and American Indians and Alaska Natives, as compared to U.S. population as a whole.        

Workshop Objectives

  • To explore community perception and barriers in accessing care.
  • To understand the issues of intent, behavior, and impact in the delivery of health services.
  • To establish the shared responsibilities of the community and the healthcare community in enhancing the quality of health and preventive care. 
  • To gain an understanding of the business imperative of building culturally-competent systems. 
  • To assist providers in earning alternatives and effective methods to negotiate with families when the family’s and provider’s belief systems may vary.
