Cultural Competency Training to Meet State Requirements for New Jersey Physicians
Date:2/18/2009

BOSTON, Feb. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Manhattan Cross Cultural Group, founded by Drs. Joseph Betancourt, Alex Green and J. Emilio Carrillo - three physician thought-leaders in the field of cross-cultural care - have created an on-line CME-accredited cultural competency training course called Quality Interactions(R) that meets the requirements set forth by NJ Bill SB144. This bill requires all physicians in the state of New Jersey to complete six hours of cultural competency training as a condition for licensure to practice medicine.

Quality Interactions(R) is built on a nationally recognized, cross-cultural curriculum published by Drs. Betancourt, Green and Carrillo in the Annals of Internal Medicine (Cross-Cultural Primary Care: A Patient-Based Approach. Ann Intern Med. 1999; 130:829-834). Rather than memorizing facts about a multitude of cultural or ethnic groups, the patient-based approach centers on the idea that patients themselves are your best source of information about their own unique cultural perspectives. Quality Interactions(R) teaches a set of fundamental concepts and skills that are essential for physicians to provide more efficient and effective care to patients of all cultural backgrounds.

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 health care professionals around the country. "As busy practicing physicians ourselves, we know that no one likes to be required to do more work. We developed this e-learning program as a way to make the task of cultural competence training not only interesting and clinically relevant, bu
