How to deliver culturally competent healthcare for communities and people with an ethnic minority background
An Inclusive Pharmacy Practice resource for all pharmacy professionals
Public Health England and the Chief Pharmaceutical Officer’s team at NHS England and NHS Improvement, working with partners, have developed this resource pack to signpost pharmacy teams across all parts of the NHS system to resources that can help you better:
- Understand and interpret local population health data on health outcomes and inequalities.
- Engage and work with communities and people with an ethnic minority background to design culturally competent and tailored approaches to healthcare delivery.
There are many factors that impact our health and wellbeing, including our behaviours, the places that we live in, the care we receive, and the genes we were born with. By understanding the population we serve, through better use of health data and being more culturally aware, pharmacy teams in secondary and primary care and community settings can improve care they provide to the people they serve and mitigate against health inequalities.
You can download the resources pack here.
For those directly supporting trainees, such as pre-registration trainee pharmacy technicians (PTPT). Readily available learning that can be used to inform practice as an educator and pharmacy professional.
EDI and Transgender Healthcare Resources
Equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI) are central to the NHS, in terms of both employment and service delivery. This session offers the opportunity to consider your role in relation to EDI and explore the key principles involved. Throughout the session there are opportunities to apply the learning to practice through carrying out activities and reflecting on these.
The aim of this learning programme is to provide an overview of teaching and learning theory for adults and includes case study examples available for use or adaptation in your workplace, with consideration for EDI.
Learn how to:
- describe some of the issues the transgender and non-binary community face within healthcare
- introduce measures to make your pharmacy more inclusive and a safe space for the transgender and non-binary people accessing your services
- demonstrate a team approach to supporting transgender and non-binary people with health and social care issues.
Includes an option to supporting the future workforce develop their professional identity as part of the community and its diversity, as a community immersion project. An example of which can be accessed here.
