Cultural Humility

This interactive and didactic course explores the concept of cultural humility and identifies strategies for increasing understanding and implementation of the principles. Cultural Humility is defined by the National Institute of Health as: “a lifelong process of self-reflection and self-critique whereby the individual not only learns about another’s culture, but one starts with an examination of her/his own beliefs and cultural identities.” During this learning experience, participants will have the opportunity to consider the personal application of cultural humility. The fluidity of cultural humility will be explored. The difference between cultural humility and cultural competency will be discussed. The importance of a historical context regarding cultures will be addressed. The QUAN Model will be used to provide a framework for this concept. The five R’s of Cultural Humility will be introduced as steps in assuring implementation of cultural humility practices.
