The main objective of the workshop is:
To help participants sharpen their skills as professional development educators/lecturers and trainers by exploring best practices for teaching health literacy, cultural humility and health equity.
Before the workshop we will:
Provide background material for participants to review for orientation in advance of the workshop.
During the workshop we will:
- Be introduced to each other as a basis for exchange during the workshop, for networking and continued contact during the conference week and beyond.
- Participate together in an introductory presentation on training formats and innovative experience in preparing professionals on health literacy and cultural competency and humility in health systems and other settings. Special emphasis will be made on diversity in methods of teaching (i.e. dialogue, narrative, self-reflection, role play, digital) and evaluation (i.e. self-efficacy check lists, Inventory of Assessing Health Professionals Cultural Competency - IAPCC-R).
- Learn of practical and applied experience through case-studies and demonstrations, from a panel of international experts, focusing on challenges and successes.
- Share mutual experience in small groups, focusing on curricula that support and promote interactive and innovative teaching and training approaches, and modes of evaluation. Participants are encouraged to bring their own cultural competency curriculum, questions and contributions to the discussion.
- Summarize through large group discussion the small group outcomes and conclusions, synthesizing and integrating practical recommendations.
Following the workshop we will:
- Comprise a compendium of resources and experiences shared during the workshop.
- Provide a list of participants for continued networking and possible future collaboration.
This workshop is relevant for any and all professionals seeking to motivate colleagues, team members and students for more effective practice in health literacy and cultural competency.
