Ph.D. in Translational Health Sciences student Mandi Pratt-Chapman submitted an abstract that highlights findings from a literature review to inform a cultural-sensitivity training expected to launch in fall 2017. The training will recruit four-person teams from 25 cancer centers to build quality improvement action plans around cultural sensitivity, health literacy, and shared decision-making. The online portion of the course will launch in the fall, and the live portion, which will be at GW in January 2018, will feature technical assistance from diverse experts from institutions across the U.S. An assessment of progress will take place over six months with the 25 participating cancer center teams.
