DHA Supports HS 2 for HB 344 Cultural Competency and Implicit Bias Training

DHA sent a letter of support to Representative Minor-Brown, sponsor of House Substitute 2 for House Bill 344 on June 20th. This bill seeks to address disparities in health care by directing a subcommittee of the Delaware Perinatal Quality Collaborative (DPQC) to develop guidelines for cultural competency training programs for use by hospitals and freestanding birthing centers in employee training and education programs. Program training would include diversity, inclusion, and address implicit/unconscious bias. While Delaware hospitals have already implemented cultural competency training, this bill will ensure that training keeps pace with best practices in the field based on the latest research and developments.
