LIVE, Interactive Webinar Training: Micro-Level Cultural Consideration in Dementia Care: A Culturally Determined Phenomena and the Effects on Family Caregiving (Hosted with CNAEA)

November 18, 2022 @ 3:00 pm 6:15 pm EST

Available population data may underestimate the risk and prevalence of dementia among many cultures in the United States. Lack of assessment for need has influenced a lack of cultural support in dementia care. This live, interactive workshop aims to broaden participants’ understanding of how dementia is viewed by specific cultures (Black Americans, Latinx/Latino Americans, Asian Americans, American Indigenous populations), what caregiving for elders means within these cultures, and how all systems involved can contribute to developing culturally sensitive dementia care services.
Cultural competence is not a one-time, finite achievement; it is an ongoing learning process. This workshop is fully interactive. Attendees may ask and answer questions, participate in instructor-led discussions, case-vignette discussions, and a Q&A session.

Cost: $30

CE Credits: 3

From this workshop attendees will learn to:

  1. Define culture and its context in dementia care
  2. Describe dementia as a culturally determined phenomenon
  3. Recognize health care disparities among Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) as barriers to services
  4. Explain how different cultures view caregiving for a family member with dementia
  5. Identify culturally competent interventions to strengthen and improve dementia care
