Racial and ethnic minorities are disproportionately impacted by disasters, and disparities that existed prior to the event are exacerbated following the event. Using a culturally and linguistically appropriate emergency risk communication framework in the context of a disaster can aid in the reduction of health disparities associated with disaster response and recovery. This COCA call will illustrate the importance of cultural competency in the everyday communication activities between clinicians and patients, and will discuss culturally competent emergency risk communication strategies that clinicians can use during any crisis.
At the conclusion of the session, the participant will be able to accomplish the following:
- Define cross-cultural communication and its role in emergency preparedness and response
- Discuss the significance of delivering culturally appropriate preparedness messages and how preparedness messages are perceived across various cultures
- Describe strategies for culturally competent communications during a public health emergency, and
- Demonstrate how to incorporate these strategies into day-to-day activities and roles
