The Southeastern Health Equity Council ‘s Cultural Competency Committee releases two new publications: “Cultural Competency: What is it and Why is it Necessary?” and the "Cultural Competency Resource Guide" with the assistance of the SHEC’s Summer 2014 Emerging Scholars, Sara Mohamed and Tahani Hamdan. “Cultural Competency: What is it and Why is it Necessary?” is a white paper defining “cultural competency” and explaining its importance and need in the alleviating issues of disparities within health care systems. Commonly used terms and concepts are explored in this paper. The “Cultural Competency Resource Guide” is a guide to resources, trainers, institutions, and publications about cultural and linguistic competency that we can share with our members, stakeholders and partners to help address cultural barriers with our health care systems. Additionally, this guide also includes important terms for members of the SHEC to become familiar with as the SHEC develops a common language around cultural competency.
