Dear Healthcare Executive,

Join us on October 11, 2006 for a special 90-minute audio conference, when Elsa Batica, cultural health development and training manager with Children's Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota and Patti Ludwig-Beymer, administrative director for nursing research and education, Edward Hospital & Health Services, will provide an in-depth description of the cultural competency programs at their organizations and how these efforts improve the overall quality of care their organizations provide.

Cross-cultural barriers can severely undermine the quality of healthcare that your patients and/or members receive, but many healthcare organizations are struggling to develop a comprehensive healthcare cultural competency program that meets the needs of their population and complies with Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO) and Culturally and Linguistically Appropriate Services (CLAS) standards.

During "Cultural Competency in Healthcare: Ensuring Culturally Appropriate Treatment and Services To Reduce Disparities and Improve Outcomes," an October 11, 2006 audio conference, industry experts will present case studies on the development, implementation and continued refinement of healthcare competency programs to provide culturally appropriate care to diverse populations.
Visit http://www.hin.com/cgi-local/link/news/pl.cgi?cul0914h to register today.

Who Will Benefit?

CEOs, medical directors, executives responsible for culturally competent healthcare, quality improvement executives, compliance officers, disease management directors, managers and coordinators, care management nurses, business development and strategic planning directors.
