Over the past 30 years, the maternal mortality rate in the U.S. has doubled, with significantly higher rates among women from minority groups. Maternal health care providers can help eliminate these disparities by delivering the highest quality of care to all women.
OCR’s partner, the HHS Office of Minority Health, has launched a free, accredited, 2-hour e-learning program, which is designed for providers and students seeking knowledge and skills related to cultural competency, cultural humility, person-centered care, and implicit bias across the continuum of maternal healthcare. At a glance, the e-learning program allows participants to:
-- Learn how to improve your quality of care by understanding, respecting, and responding to a patient’s experiences, values, and beliefs;
-- Earn up to 2 continuing education credits at no cost;
-- Accredited for physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nurses, certified nurse midwives, and certified midwives;
-- Complete the program at your own pace; and
-- Enjoy a friendly learning experience, using case studies, self-reflection questions, and a Resource Library.Learn how to improve your quality of care by understanding, respecting, and responding to a patient’s experiences, values, and beliefs: https://thinkculturalhealth.hhs.gov/maternal-health-care.
