Cultural competency resources

Diverse Care - Tools to help achieve health equity

Patient panels are growing more diverse and needs are becoming more complex. It is important for providers to have the knowledge, resources, and tools to offer culturally competent care. Amerigroup District of Columbia, Inc. wants to help by offering the following comprehensive trainings and resources as we all work together to achieve health equity.

Comprehensive Trainings - Individualized care every patient deserves

My Diverse Patients
The My Diverse Patients website offers learning experiences, techniques, and helps you to provide the individualized care every patient deserves, regardless of their diverse backgrounds.

Caring for Diverse Populations toolkit

Resources to support diverse patients and communities
We’ve heard it all our lives: To be fair, you should treat everybody the same. But the challenge is that everybody is not the same—and these differences can lead to critical disparities not only in how patients access healthcare, but their outcomes as well. The COVID-19 pandemic has reignited public attention about the serious public health risks and consequences of disparities, and the critical need for health equity.
