- Incorporating Cultural and Linguistic Competence into the Diagnosis and Treatment of Depression (2008) – The National Center for Cultural Competence developed a unique approach to Continuing Medical Education (CME) that addresses racial and ethnic disparities in the diagnosis and treatment of depression. The model uses self-assessment as a learning tool for providers to: heighten awareness; influence attitudes toward practice; and motivate the development of knowledge and skills to incorporate cultural and linguistic competency into the diagnosis and treatment of depression. This CME is designed for a broad array of primary care providers that includes, but is not limited to, Family and Community Medicine, Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine, Obstetrics and Gynecology, Internal Medicine, and Gerontology. The CME is also appropriate for psychiatrists seeking to add to their base of knowledge on cultural and linguistic competence. Georgetown University will issue one (1) CME credit.
