Research shows that diversity and cultural awareness play a critical role in advancing the medical profession among providers and patients alike. In spite of that fact, more than 70% of the physicians practicing in Connecticut are unaware of where to access cultural competency resources. Increased civility, communication and diversity awareness in the medical profession have been proven to reduce tardiness, absenteeism, workplace violence, discrimination and harassment.

On November 6, 2010, at theYale Smilow Cancer Center, QUEST, an award winning training firm, will offer a one-day training conference to address this important issue and provide CT’s medical community with a wealth of resources for improving organizational culture. Some of the most respected names in the medicine health care, and the legislature will gather in New Haven to provide CT health care professionals with the skills they need to:

- Improve communication, civility and respect among medical professionals and their staff;
- Improve patient care by creating a harmonious synergy between providers and their patients in multi-cultural settings.
