What is CCHL?


  • Are you looking to inspire culture change within your organization?
  • Is the community you serve growing in cultural and linguistic diversity?
  • Would you like to be recognized as a trailblazer in advancing cultural and linguistic competence?

We have cost-effective solutions for your community-serving organization! 

According to the CDC

"The ideas people have about health, the languages they use, the health literacy skills they have, and the contexts in which they communicate about health reflect their cultures. Organizations can increase communication effectiveness when they recognize and bridge cultural differences that may contribute to miscommunication."

Curriculum Development 

A region-specific curriculum for a self-sustaining Cultural Competency and Health Literacy training was developed, by Martine Hackett, Ph.D. Assistant Professor, Public and Community Health Programs, Hofstra University and the National Center for Suburban Studies, Suburban Health Equity Institute. Dr. Hackett's expertise encompasses culturally competent and health literate strategies, maternal-child health, infant mortality, health communications, and health disparities. Her vast experience working with community organizations is a testament to the quality of the cultural competency programs. 

Program Mission

To advance cultural and linguistic competence, promote effective communication to eliminate health disparities, and enhance patient outcomes.

Based on the same region-specific curriculum, there are two kinds of CCHL trainings your organization can participate in.

After the initial training, certified Master Facilitators are able to lead an unlimited number of 1.5-hour internal staff trainings OR 7.5-hour Train-the-Trainer sessions. This provides organizations with the flexibility to develop and sustain a comprehensive plan for training all internal staff members on the value of CCHL. 

 Recordings can be saved and viewed multiple times in the future for reference and for new trainings  

Self-sustaining model that can tailor the curriculum to your organization's needs. Master Facilitators can lead group trainings during orientation sessions for new hires, for annual employee updates and trainings, for community partners, and more

 

What is the Virtual Training?

This 90-minute virtual training is designed for organizations looking for a flexible option to conduct CCHL staff trainings. Every organization is unique, with varied staff sizes, space, resources, and needs. Which is why this adaptable training may be the right option for your team. 

Virtual trainings take place on set dates via Webex, with curriculum expert Dr. Martine Hackett leading each session. During these interactive trainings, participants are able to respond to live polls, pose questions, and share feedback about the program. 

With this training, you can invite your entire staff to participate together during a lunch break. We will ask you for the names of everyone who attended the session to capture attendance.
