The Refugee Health Technical Assistance Center is hosting this free webinar.  This training will introduce clinical providers, health care administrators and social service providers to the Culturally and Linguistically Appropriate Services (CLAS) standards, issued in 2001 by the US Department of Health Human Services’ Office of Minority Health. A specific focus will be on defining racially-based oppression and its impact within a clinical setting. It will also emphasize the importance of implementing CLAS standards from a service, legal and financial perspective. Faculty will present case studies outlining best-practices in applying the CLAS standards. Case studies will highlight Community Partnerships, Health Literacy and Client-Centered Care.
