Getting Started: Planning, Implementing and Evaluating Culturally Competent Service Delivery Systems for Children with Special Health Needs and their Families
Nationally, health care programs and organizations are struggling with the challenges and opportunities to respond effectively to the needs of individuals and families from racially, ethnically, culturally, and linguistically diverse groups. This checklist is one in a series of three developed by the National Center for Cultural Competence (NCCC) that are designed to assist programs and organizations to begin strategic development of policies, structures, procedures and practices that support cultural and linguistic competence. This checklist focuses on those programs and organizations concerned with the delivery of services and enabling supports to children with special health needs and their families. It provides guidance for getting started in incorporating culturally competent principles and practices for organizations at all levels of the cultural competency continuum. Eleven resources are included as well as information about the NCCC.
