Culturally Competent and Community-Centered Health Communication: Health Interventions and Partnerships (organized by HCWG)

Tuesday, November 3, 2015: 8:30 a.m. - 10:00 a.m.
This session offers useful strategies for communicating with a diversity of populations. Audience members will learn skill related to developing culturally competent health communication interventions and assessing collaborative goal setting. Presentations feature interventions designed to reach a variety of populations including African American males and military populations.
Session Objectives: Identify cultural competency best practices and how they can be infused into all aspects of research and program development for behavior change with underserved populations. Discuss barriers to incorporating cultural competency into research and program development (cost, time, resources) and demonstrate ways to overcome the obstacles. Describe a measure developed to evaluate collaborative goal setting. Describe the process for working with special populations to develop an agenda for e-technology to facilitate informed decision making. Identify the current practices of the shared decision-making (SDM) process among Black men and healthcare providers. Describe how a health communication campaign can be used to affect intent to make sleep, activity, and nutrition behavior change across military target audiences.
