Cultural Competency Trainings can be as varied as the cultures they are helping organizations learn to navigate. Trainings can range from under an hour to a full day and can take place with a handful of individuals or an auditorium full of people. Participants can vary in many ways, including age, staff role, and level of exposure to LGBTQ issues. And the focus of trainings can range from the very basic to highly focused trainings on single issues, such as cancer or HIV.
Our Trainings in the Media
As a result, one single Cultural Competency Training curriculum cannot serve all needs. Trainings needs to be adapted to fit the specific cultural competency needs of the requesting organization, university or healthcare facility. The multi media Reexamining LGBT Healthcare curriculum is designed to be easily customized for a wide range of training needs, lengths and formats.
Contact us for information about scheduling a training for your organization, healthcare facility or university.
Accessing the curriculum for your own organization's use
Due to the complexity of the curriculum, access is only available to organizations and individuals who have attended a Train the Trainer workshop that explains the core curriculum components and our model for improving the LGBT cultural competence of healthcare professionals.
The Train the Trainer curriculum consists of three major components:
A best practices manual that details the process of creating a cultural competency curriculum
The Toolkit, including PowerPoint slides, 5 short films, handouts, whole-group and self-guided activities, and resources for more information.
Rigorously researched and exclusively designed evaluation measures for trainers and participants.
For more information on scheduling a Train the Trainer workshop, please contact the National LGBT Cancer Network.
