Cultural Competency Curriculum for Disaster Response

Office Of Minority Health- United States Department Of Health And Human Services

January 1, 2009

The four courses are designed to equip disaster and crisis volunteers and personnel with the awareness, knowledge, and skills needed to provide culturally and linguistically appropriate services to diverse communities during all phases of disaster. The curriculum is grounded in the Office of Minority Health's CLAS Standards, which are grouped into three themes: Culturally Competent Care, Language Access Services, and Organizational Supports.
