CEUs: 0.10 AAA CEUs

Program Focus: Knowledge
Learning Outcomes: Upon completion, each participant in the eAudiology Web Seminar will be able to:
- Define cultural humility and how it can positivity impact patient care
- Differentiate cultural humility from cultural competence
- Apply cultural humility to promote Diversity Equity and Inclusion (DEI) and social justice in interactions with patients and colleagues
Cultural Humility, a framework for exploring self and others, is a process of reflection and lifelong inquiry that involves awareness of one’s own personal and cultural biases and awareness and sensitivity to significant cultural issues of others. Cultural humility is different from cultural competence. Without judgement or condemnation, cultural humility assists in promoting DEI to advance social justice. Real world examples will be used to highlight actionable strategies to overcome the deleterious effects of unconscious bias in education and practice.
