Critical Synthesis Package: Cultural Competence Self-Assessment Questionnaire-Service Provider Version (CCSAQ-SP)

Date of Review: October, 2018

Rigorous, well designed and validated survey, from MedEdPORTAL, to assess most any health professional in cultural competence. Takes 20-30 minutes. Curriculum has written survey. Ideally there exists a website that will do an analysis for survey taker. If not, there is some labor involved in using this as an individual or as a program. One would need to have an admin/analyst calculate means and link this to an expert led discussion for interpretation. The survey is impressive in its depth. Initially designed to address race, community and was focused more on children. It seems to have been used on a broader scale.  Aashish Didwania, MD, NCEAS
