We are happy to announce the upcoming CPPE learning campaign Seeing you better: Culturally competent person-centred care, which will begin Monday 13 September.
This four-week learning campaign is designed to help pharmacy professionals actively seek knowledge about the experiences of people from different cultures to their own, to enrich their understanding, and to promote self-reflection on confidence and competence regarding cultural equity. Participants will learn the importance of sensitively asking questions, rather than making assumptions, regarding a person’s beliefs, values, needs and concerns.
Participants will explore how to identify a person’s needs and preferences and treat them with dignity and respect, regardless of their race, religion, physical or learning ability, gender, age, sexuality, current health, socio-economic status, or how they prefer to live.
CPPE has designed this campaign to help pharmacy professionals reflect on:
Each week of the campaign will feature a range of activities, including self-reflection tools to help identify strengths and areas for development, a patient story that evolves throughout the four weeks, an e-challenge, and access to a new CPPE gateway page.
CPPE will also be hosting a Twitter chat on Thursday 30 September, from 7:00pm – 8:00pm, where we will engage with pharmacy professionals across the industry in discussing what cultural competency means.
