Description:

The lack of diversity in our hospitals and clinics impacts patient care. Minority patients are more likely to seek care and follow treatment recommendations from health professionals who look, sound, eat, worship and share the same cultural norms as they do. Leadership teams and hospital boards should reflect the community being served. However, in 2015 minorities made up just 14% of hospital boards and only 11% of executive leadership positions, according to a study by the American Hospital Association.

If your organization – at the line staff level or within senior leadership – does not appropriately address diversity and inclusion, this webinar will provide examples of how to incorporate these into the strategy and culture and what other leading healthcare providers are doing.

 Objectives:

  1. Discuss staff training model that addresses the cultural and language factors affecting patient care
  2. Discuss how to implement a performance goal for senior managers and leadership that addresses diversity & inclusion recruiting

 Interesting fact:

Did you know that less than half of hospitals today, as reported by a NAACP, allocate budgetary funds for diversity and inclusion initiatives?
