Implementing CLAS Standards and Improving Cultural Competency and Language Access: A Practical Toolkit
Implementing CLAS standards and improving cultural competency and language access is designed to promote use of the National Standards for Culturally and Linguistically Appropriate Services in Health and Health Care (CLAS Standards) developed by the Office of Minority Health. Originally published in 2000, the CLAS standards were revised in 2013. The Toolkit includes a short history of the CLAS standards movement, the rationale for their use, as well as a side-by-side comparison of the original and revised versions of the standards. The publication also provides links to resources useful in implementing each of the 15 standards. (Abstract courtesy of Dr. Nicholas V. Montalto)
