PNR Partners webinar January 28

Posted by on January 20th, 2016 Posted in: Funding, News from Network Members, News From NNLM PNR, Training & Education


Date: Thursday, January 28

Time: 1:00 pm PT, Noon Alaska Time, 2:00 pm MT

Join us to hear from two of our recipients who each received PNR Health Disparities Information Outreach funding. In, Somali Cultural Profile Project: Collaborating to Update Information about Culture and Health Disparities in the Somali Community, Christine Wilson Owens will describe the partnership and work of EthnoMed and the King County Somali Health Board in reviewing and enhancing the Somali Cultural Profile and Somali Community Resources pages on the EthnoMed website. (For those who may not be familiar with EthnoMed it is an online resource for healthcare providers serving immigrant and refugee patients.) Collaboratively, EthnoMed and the Somali Health Board pulled in community voices and health care provider perspectives to document information about the culture and the health experience of Somali immigrants in the Seattle area, with particular focus on highlighting health disparity issues affecting this immigrant community.

Library Services Manager at Tuality Healthcare, Judith Hayes had a unique feature to her project titled, Increasing Health Disparity and Resource Awareness at Tuality Healthcare. Tuality Healthcare’s Cultural Diversity Task Force collaborated with People, Places, Things to bring a dynamic, hands-on workshop to demonstrate techniques for facilitating critical information transfer across language divides. Vignettes were used to demonstrate sources of disparity and possible sources of resources and resolution. The one-hour presentations were designed jointly by Tuality and Teatro Milagro to address Tuality’s Specific Situation. The goals were to increase awareness of health disparities in the Tuality service area, increase awareness of available resources to help address health and cultural disparity issues at Tuality, and to improve the level of understanding between staff and clients of different cultural backgrounds.

Listening to the successes and challenges of these particular programs can inspire and generate energy to create your own program or adapt these and other funded projects to your own organization’s needs.

Thoughts on "PNR Partners webinar January 28"

Avatar Kate Orville says:

Will the webinar be recorded and available for later viewing? I know a number of physicians and nurses in King County who would be interested in this webinar but who are unlikely to be able to participate in the webinar in two days.
Thank you! The webinar looks GREAT!
