Diversity Challenge Seminar: How can we develop culturally competent services?  

Diversity Challenge Seminar: How can we develop culturally competent services?

 This seminar will be held on Thursday 2 March from 10.30 to 12.45 in Room E92, Richmond Building, University of Bradford.

The concept of cultural competence in health and social care services was developed as a response to the inequalities and disadvantage experienced by people from minority ethnic and religious communities. Such communities represent a significant part of the British Population; the last UK Census showed that minority ethnic groups made up 14% of the general population of England, with higher rates of up to 40% in some cities.

Barriers to effective service provision for minority ethnic and religious groups include: poor knowledge of available services, poor standards of communication, delays in diagnosis and treatment, high levels of stress among carers, and significant unmet needs.

Led by Ghazala Mir, Associate Professor, University of Leeds,this presentation will describe potential solutions to such barriers and methods that practitioners can use to develop culturally competent services.
