Co-presented by Dawn Redfield and other CARF staff, this session will provide a high level overview of the practical application of CARF’s standards regarding cultural competency and diversity planning. During this webinar, you will learn about the key elements that need to be considered when conducting an assessment of an organization’s internal and external community. Emphasis is placed on sharing examples of ways an organization can demonstrate an awareness of, respect for, and attention to the diversity of the people with whom it interacts. Suggestions will be offered regarding how providers can respond to the diversity of their stakeholders to help reduce disparities in service delivery. Other CARF standards that relate to cultural competency and diversity will be identified. The presentation will benefit health and human services programs in the areas of aging services (adult day services, assisted living, retirement living, continuing care retirement communities), behavioral health, child and youth services, employment and community services, medical rehabilitation, and opioid treatment (addiction and substance abuse). Administrators of organizations who are seeking accreditation for the first time or preparing for resurvey are encouraged to participate.
