Steps to Becoming Culturally and Linguistically Competent- A Pediatric Curriculum

Date of Review: February, 2019

This resource is a fairly comprehensive, well thought out introduction to cultural and linguistic competency for residents, although it could be used for medical students as well. It incorporates several educational methods including 2 interactive workshops, an interactive power point and web-based, case-based role playing in smaller groups. The curricula, as presented by the authors that can be completed over 2 1 hour workshops such as noon conferences. The authors have published an article validating its utility to improve learner knowledge as well as knowledge application. The material presented include a guide to the curricula, a power point, roleplay scenarios and a pocket guide as well as a knowledge test. This would be fairly easy to use and could be split in to more than one part depending on time constraints — Barbara Bayldon, MD, NCEAS
