Looking for Black Young Adults and Parents–Workgroup on Culturally Sensitive Health Care
We are looking for Black young adults with special health needs and parents for a workgroup on culturally sensitive health care.
What should culturally sensitive health care look like for Black young adults with special health needs as they transition from pediatric to adult health care?
We are looking for your insights and ideas from your experience receiving health services as you transition from pediatric to adult health care. Your ideas will be used to help create education resources for health care providers on culturally sensitive health care practices, and tools for youth and families to support successful transition to adult health care. This project is through the Oregon Center for Children and Youth with Special Healthcare Needs at OHSU (OCCYSHN).
