Webinar: Providing Culturally Competent Care: Meeting the LTSS Needs of Dually Eligible Beneficiaries


April 12, 12:00 PM - 1:30 PM ET

Providing culturally competent care is a key aspect of delivering an improved customer experience. Register to participate on this webinar that will focus on how to identify LTSS preferences, values, and needs of members from diverse cultural backgrounds. It will address providing services with cultural sensitivity and training the LTSS workforce in strategies to achieve cultural competence. Speakers will share concrete strategies for effectively meeting beneficiaries’ LTSS needs, in both institutional and community-based settings, while respecting their diverse cultural preferences.

Long-term services and supports (LTSS) are a vital part of care for many dually eligible beneficiaries. Individuals from racial and ethnic minority groups often experience disparities in access, quality, and outcomes in LTSS; such as higher rates of re-hospitalization under home health care and lower quality of care in nursing homes. To help address these disparities, providers and plans need ways to meet the cultural and linguistic needs, values, and preferences of diverse individuals.
