Assess Your Cultural Competence Needs

Nov 15, 2018

Assess the influence of your own values, perceptions, opinions, knowledge, and social position on interactions with others, and infuse cultural competence into your needs assessment by:

  • Identifying and using a culturally-competent program evaluator
  • Deciding how to measure cultural competence and collecting cultural competence-related information and data
  • Identifying change from a community perspective
  • Gaining community approval for data collection methods, analysis, and the final product
  • Creating a process for identifying culturally-relevant risk and protective factors and underlying conditions
