The Cultural and Linguistic Competence Health Practitioner Assessment (CLCHPA) self-guided learning activity was developed by the Georgetown University National Center for Cultural Competence. The CLCHPA is designed to enhance the delivery of high quality services for diverse patient/client populations, and promote cultural and linguistic as essential approaches addressing health and healthcare disparities.
The CLCHPA is based on two assumptions:
- Cultural and linguistic competence are developmental processes at both the individual and organizational levels.
- With appropriate support, individuals can enhance their knowledge and skills over time.
Achieving cultural and linguistic competence is a developmental process – both individuals and organizations are at various levels of awareness, knowledge, and skills along the cultural competence continuum.
On-line access to the CLCHPA is designed solely as a self-assessment and educational activity. It may not be used as a measure in research or for evaluation of educational or training interventions.
