Book your place on this workshop and join us for tea and cake.

On Thu 6th October 10-11am we have invited a guest speaker from Elsevier (ClinicalKey and ClinicalKey for Nursing) to deliver their Project Empower: Cultural Competence Workshop.

This workshop will be followed by light refreshments in the library as part of our annual Libraries Week celebration where you can find out more about what we do. We have very limited spaces for this workshop, so please email to reserve a place.

What is the Cultural Competence Workshop?

A free, 1 hour, onsite workshop about cultural intelligence and supporting Diversity & Inclusion in Healthcare. We will share examples of acts of inclusion in the daily practice, relevant content about highlighted priorities and tools available to make healthcare more inclusive.

The target audience is nurses, clinicians, healthcare staff, students and anyone who is interested. The resources ClinicalKey and ClinicalKey for Nursing will feature and a certificate of attendance provided.

The topics that the workshop can focus on are:

  • Acts of inclusion in healthcare
  • Unconscious bias
  • Management of difficult conversations
  • Cultural Intelligence
  • Intersectionality
  • The future of healthcare (trends and tools)

What is Project: Empower?

Elsevier’s Project Empower started during the pandemic when hospitals in the UK requested more content about ethnicity and its impact in healthcare. Elsevier provided content, online activities about cultural intelligence and spaces to promote dialogue. Then in 2021, it was expanded to other territories (like Brazil and South Africa) and other intersectional topics (like acts of inclusion, difficult conversations, unconscious bias) having the first onsite event with workshops at the Florence Nightingale Foundation Scholars Event in London; which was followed by a UK Tour visiting different NHS Trusts in Summer 2022.
