Familias en Acción course and guide

Posted by on March 16th, 2017 Posted in: Health Information Literacy, Minority Health Concerns

Familias en Acción is a Latino-serving community based-organization that delivers culturally specific training for health professionals and health education for the Latino community. It has multiple professional development opportunities available:

Care of Latinos with Serious Illnesses: A Palliative Approach, a free online course for Nursing Students

This short, four module course gives participants an important grounding in culturally sensitive issues that can arise in interactions with patients and families with low health literacy. The result will help you and your organization better serve your Latino patients and their families with serious illnesses, leading to improved health outcomes.

Implementation Guide for Community Partnership Model: Improving Health Outcomes by Linking Community-based Community Health Workers with Health Systems

This guide discusses the rationale and describes the steps to implement a working partnership between Health Systems and Community Based Organizations – from planning through implementation, using the partnership between Familias en Acción and Kaiser Permanente Northwest as an example.
