The NCCC dedicates this web page to disseminating information on culturally and linguistically competent values, attitudes, policy, structures and practices that are both promising and/or evidence-based.
Research has not kept pace the current and emergent practices that exemplify cultural and linguistic competence in many health care and mental health programs. Personnel within these programs are busy doing the work, which often provides little time for publishing and disseminating their remarkable work in the juried literature.
This web page highlights promising and/or evidence-based practices that are commensurate with the conceptual frameworks and definitions of cultural and linguistic competence embraced by the NCCC. It offers short articles, featured interviews, Power point presentations, photographs and other references from health centers, integrated service delivery systems for children with special health care needs and their families, system of care communities, consumer and family advocacy agencies and academic training programs. The web page is updated regularly.
