New Tools for Improving Health Literacy
Cultural Activation Prompts: At last month’s ACMHA Summit, Carole Siegel of the Nathan Kline Center of Excellence for Culturally Competent Mental Health Care, and Lenora Reid, CCSI’ Director of Cultural Competence and Diversity Initiatives presented their work on cultural activation and the importance of achieving health literacy in the context of culture and community. Sandra Mitchell, a Peer Specialist in the New York City area was also a member of the panel shared her experiences and how such a tool can be helpful in her engagement with clients. The tools they have developed help to support and empower patients in identifying and discussing cultural issues with their providers so that this information can be considered in developing care plans and treatment strategies, which is so critical to improving patient engagement and healthcare outcomes. Slides from this session can be found on the ACMHA website. For more information about CCSI’s work in the area of Cultural Competence, click here.
