Health Care Disparities Resources Providing care differently to those who may be of an ethit

Health Care Disparities Resources Providing care differently to those who may be of an ethic minority, speak a different language, or be of a different socioeconomic class, is a significant problem in the way health care is delivered and measured. Health care managers need to constantly be aware of the specific issues related to health care disparities.

Health care managers can use the Agency of Healthcare Research (AHRQ) as a resource. The AHRQ created a National Healthcare Disparities report to educate health care professionals in this area. Please review this report and any other resources you may locate related to healthcare disparities from the Capella library or Internet. These resources will help you create your post.

You are the CEO of a major organization that manages multiple primary care clinics across a geographic area. Within your service area are two new groups of immigrants that represent Hmong people from Southeast Asia and Somali refugees from the war-torn African nation of Somalia. Further, in the summertime you also have a significant population of legally present Hispanic farm workers who bring their entire family to the area.

Considering the information from AHRQ, the Office of Minority Health, along with other sources, discuss how you will ensure that your organization provides quality medical care to those who are of an ethnic minority and likely have a language other than English.

Provide a 250- to 300-word post of the top three things you would do to begin to become a culturally competent health care organization.
