Attention New Jersey Physicians Still Needing to Meet Cultural Competency Requirement by June 30

BOSTON, May 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Manhattan Cross Cultural Group is now offering at a discounted price, the Quality Interactions(R) 6-hour CME cultural competency training course for physicians in New Jersey still needing to complete this requirement for licensure by June 30, 2009. New Jersey physicians can sign up for the training and receive a 25% discount by visiting: and entering the following Promo Code at checkout: NJ_25.

Quality Interactions(R) highlights the key elements of the nationally recognized, cross-cultural curriculum published by Drs. Betancourt, Green and J. Emilio Carrillo in the Annals of Internal Medicine (Cross-Cultural Primary Care: A Patient-Based Approach. Ann Intern Med. 1999;130:829-834). The patient-based approach is centered on the idea that the patient themselves is your best source of information about their own cultural perspective versus learning a set of cultural traits and characteristics about a particular race or ethnicity that in turn, could lead to more stereotyping.

Quality Interactions(R) is built with e-learning technology, which is time-flexible and allows the physician to move at his/her own pace, at a time that is convenient for them. In addition, it provides personalized, real-time performance feedback, as well as a summary of key concepts at the conclusion of the program. The Quality Interactions(R) program has been utilized to train over 20,000 healthcare professionals around the country.

The program, which is specifically targeted to address the requirements of the NJ Senate Bill 144, is now available for individual physician sign-up ( as well as for hospital systems (volume pricing discounts available) seeking to make this essential training available to physicians, nurses and healthcare staff.
