RWC 2023.5.10. Advancing Leaders Through Opportunity in Healthcare- Filipino, Indian and Pakistani Communities
Goal: The goal of this activity is for physicians and KP staff (clinical and non-clinical) to identify opportunities with advancing leaders in healthcare who represent the Filipino, Indian and Pakistani communities. Having a diverse leadership in healthcare may impact the clinical and relational experience of these communities. The current events in society call for greater understanding of the experiences of all minority groups.
Cultural and Linguistic Competency: Physicians and KP staff (clinical and non-clinical) to identify opportunities with advancing leaders in healthcare who represent the Filipino, Indian and Pakistani communities. Having a diverse leadership in healthcare may impact the clinical and relational experience of these communities. It is important to engage community leaders through multiple strategies and reflect the community that they are connecting with on their racial/ ethnic and socioeconomic characteristics. The meaningful inclusion of community members in the decision-making process and in the implementation of a study helps to build community capacity to engage in health promotion activities and provide cultural relevance and context. Investing the time, energy and patience is needed to build equitable partnerships for the purpose of eliminating health disparities and addressing implicit bias. Each community has its own set of unique practices that both academic and community researchers should identify and implement. The hope of this scoping review is to expedite this often long-term process for other community-academic partnerships working to improve the health of Pacific Islanders.
Implicit Bias: Inequities in healthcare treatment related to racial and ethnic disparities in leadership positions. Underrepresented racial/ethnic identities in medicine may lead to more underrepresented leadership. There is a need to establish policy and programs to address these disparities to implement change. Workforce diversity and inclusion are vital for improving healthcare equity and organizations should prioritize hiring and retaining leaders of diverse backgrounds.
