Understanding Cultural Population

The first step in providing culturally competent care is to understand which cultures the patient population served by the clinical service identifies with. This series of presentations will focus on identifying the most common racial/ethnic/cultural groups treated by OMH and how OMH data sets can be used to identify the racial/ethnic/cultural groups in the patient population.
