How we do it

Competency Courses

We offer a range of courses in the field of cultural competency specifically for the clinical environment, delivering better the relationships between the clinician and patient.

Critical Communication Courses

We offer a range of courses in the field of Critical Communications in a clinical environment, improving relationships within clinical teams.


We offer a one-off review of cultural competency within your organisation. However, building upon that, as part of your continuous improvement programme, we can offer an annual review of cultural competency & health disparities within your organisation. Each years review makes recommendations and reports on improvements or declines from the previous year.


Available nationwide, with highly authoritative speakers, cultural competency, health disparities and the health status of vulnerable populations. The latest research is evidence-based.

We undertake research projects in all areas of cultural competency, diversity and the experiences of health care of vulnerable populations.
