CSMS Issues Results of Health Disparities Survey
Date:10/28/2009

to communicate with patients, which is the foundation of the physician-patient relationship," said Kathleen A. LaVorgna, MD, president of CSMS. "The good news is that we can have an immediate impact on this situation by providing the kind of cultural awareness education physicians want and need."

CSMS is developing materials to educate physicians and office staff, working closely with national organizations dedicated to this issue. It plans to provide patient outreach materials through patient rights groups. A recent state mandate requires cultural diversity training for medical license renewal; CSMS hopes to assist in developing the curriculum so the end result is valuable for physicians. Near the conclusion of the two-year grant, CSMS will survey physicians again to measure progress in improving cultural competency.

Robert Aseltine, PhD, professor in the Division of Behavioral Sciences and Community Health and Director of the Institute for Public Health Research at the University of Connecticut Health Center, contributed to the report.

CSMS is the largest statewide physician organization with more than 7,300 medical student and physician members. The complete report and executive summary are available at www.csms.org.
