Continuing Medical Education CLC and IB

The California legislature intended AB 1195 and AB 241 to “encourage physicians and surgeons to meet the cultural and linguistic concerns” of California’s diverse patient population. Planners, faculty, and speakers are central to adhering to state law as noted in Business and Professions (B&P) Code 2190.2, which codifies the aforementioned legislation. 


Cultural and Linguistic Competency (CLC): The ability and readiness of health care providers and organizations to humbly and respectfully demonstrate, effectively communicate, and tailor delivery of care to patients with diverse values, beliefs, identities and behaviors, in order to meet social, cultural and linguistic needs as they relate to patient health.

Implicit Bias: The attitudes, stereotypes and feelings, either positive or negative, that affect our understanding, actions and decisions without conscious knowledge or control. Implicit bias is a universal phenomenon. When negative, implicit bias often contributes to unequal treatment and disparities in diagnosis, treatment decisions, levels of care and health care outcomes of people based on race, ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, disability and other characteristics.

Diversity: Having many different forms, types or ideas; showing variety. Demographic diversity can mean a group composed of people of different genders, races/ethnicities, cultures, religions, physical abilities, sexual orientations or preferences, ages, etc.
