Cross-Cultural Health Care Committee

How does culture affect the way patients and providers communicate with one another?


 

 

The purpose of the Cross-Cultural Healthcare Committee is to bring together providers and staff from the Department of Pediatrics who are interested in improving cross-cultural health care for all patients and families.

We focus on cross-cultural communications challenges that impact health outcomes using an approach that asks this key question: 
How does culture affect the way patients and providers communicate with one another?

The committee is open to anyone interested in improving cross-cultural patient care, and consists of faculty, residents, and staff.

The committee is co-chaired by Dr. Steve Poole and Marcia Carteret, MEd.

The administrative contact for the committee is Rhonda Buckner, 720-777-5775 or rhonda.buckner@childrenscolorado.org.
