Genetic Counseling Cultural Competence Toolkit
Link Description
This web-based resource portal is to enhance cultural and linguistic competence in genetic counseling settings. The primary audience is genetic counselors, but the educational needs of other target groups were considered when developing the program content, including students, genetic counseling program staff, and other health care providers.

Three (3) major learning outcomes/goals* of the conference/course:

1. Participants will be able to identify resources for increasing their cultural knowledge.
2. Participants will know how to apply cultural assessment tools in genetic counseling practice.
3. Participants will engage in cultural self-awareness, resulting in increased recognition of personal biases, limitations, and strengths when working with culturally diverse clients.

Major topics of links and cases: cultural and linguistic competence, national laws and standards, health disparities, cross cultural communication, teaching tools, clinical tools, and others.
