Pearls of Practice 9 - Hot Topics for Clinicians: Diversity, Cultural Competence & Implicit Bias. Registration is now $55!

Posted over 1 year ago

Pearls of Practice 9 - Hot Topics for Clinicians: Diversity, Cultural Competence & Implicit Bias Kickoff meeting on April 10th has been cancelled and, due to the lower cost in production, we are able to reduce registration to $55, $15 for students. We also believe the topics are relevant and important and we want to increase access to the information.


Maryland Licensed Clinicians please note: MAACP will apply for approval of Pearls of Practice 9 content in order to meet HB28/SB005’s requirement (applicants for the renewal of a license or certificate issued by a health occupations board must attest to completion of an approved implicit bias training program the first time they renew their license or certificate after April 1, 2022). And participants can answer “Yes” to the recently added CAQH question: Have you completed cultural competency training?
