• Nurse Showing Patient Test Results On Digital Tablet

    This webinar has been designed as an inter-professional training for all healthcare providers. Nurses, pharmacists, and doctors, both in practice and in training, as well as PA’s, MA's, front desk staff, receptionists, and other staff can benefit from learning about improving cultural competency skills and practices though identifying and removing potential roadblocks to care experienced by patients from different population groups. This webinar focuses on the Culturally and Linguistically Appropriate Services (CLAS) standards of the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Office of Minority Health (OMH), health disparities, and a skills-based approach to culturally competent care: the ASCN model (Ask, Share, Compare and Negotiate).

  • We would like to thank the wonderful group of community health workers that attended our workshop "Improving Indigenous Public Health Systems". Having so many passionate people in the room created an inclusive and supportive environment where everyone could share experiences and perspectives on working toward a common goal. Please watch this short video made with testimonials from participants.

    Culture of Health is an exciting integrated framework promoted through the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. Hawai‘i public health nursing branch obtained this leading-edge grant to apply the framework designed to take health to where the people live, learn, work and play. Culture of Health project is guiding people to honor their own self-health care and utilize best practices of wellbeing through a sense of place and integrated culture of community health.

    Asthma is life-threatening when students do not have the tools to manage symptoms effectively. The stock albuterol inhaler program provides an albuterol inhaler to be kept in the school health office (e.g., stock albuterol) in the event that a student is experiencing respiratory distress and does not have access to their own rescue inhaler. This e-learning course provides mandatory training for school personnel designated to administer the stock albuterol inhaler.

  • The WRPHTC continues its efforts in reviewing and rating select online courses for public health professionals. Public health interns review TRAIN courses in an effort to avoid duplication of courses while addressing the training topics needed by health departments. The WRPHTC adapted the Quality Matters form from the University of Arizona’s Office of Instruction and Assessment to develop a guide that lists high-scoring, recommended courses.
