Cultural responsiveness involves developing a curious and expansive way of thinking about others and is critical to providing person-centered integrated care. The recent rise in anti-Asian hate crimes, racism and violence targeting Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) communities in the U.S. has heightened concerns about safety and wellbeing among AAPI individuals, increasing the need for culturally responsive and person-centered health care services for AAPI communities.
By adopting a culturally responsive and trauma-informed approach to health care within AAPI communities, health care providers can honor the many cultural heritages of the Asian diaspora, support navigating challenges, promote healing, improve health outcomes and reduce disparities within these populations. Join us for an office hour session on Tuesday, May 23, 2-3 p.m. ET for a candid discussion on the experiences, challenges and strengths of AAPI individuals and communities, and to explore strategies to improve integrated care to best support AAPI communities experiencing racism and violence.
