Recognizing that we all possess biases, some of which we may not be fully aware, the ANA Diversity Awareness Project has been granted permission by the Georgetown University National Center for Cultural Competence, to connect professional nurses to their online self-assessment module.
The Cultural Competence Health Practitioner Assessment (CCHPA) was developed at the request of the Bureau of Primary Health Care (BPHC), Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), U.S. Department of Health and Human Service (DHHS). The CCHPA is made available by the Georgetown University National Center for Cultural Competence.
The CCHPA is intended to support the BPHC, and its funded programs, to enhance the delivery of high quality services to culturally and linguistically diverse individuals and underserved communities. It is also intended to promote cultural and linguistic competence as essential approaches for practitioners in the elimination of health disparities among racial and ethnic groups.
