"Learning how to provide culturally sensitive care to a diverse population of patients is a fundamental responsibility for first responders. This engaging case-based interactive program combines relevant information and effective strategies to improve the connections between emergency personnel and patients before, during, and after a disaster. It is an invaluable resource for disaster response clinicians and educators alike as we strive to improve our cultural competency."

For how long is the program accredited?

The Cultural Competency Curriculum for Disaster Preparedness and Crisis Response program is currently, and for the foreseeable future, accredited for continuing education credits.

OMH is obligated per our accrediting agreement to post the expiration dates of continuing education programs, and this is common to other continuing education courses. We are committed to ensuring that the reaccrediting process is completed in a timely manner so that the deadline extension occurs in a transparent and seamless way for users.
