Central and Rural Appalachian Culture: What Every Provider Needs to Know to Promote Effectiveness

Understanding Appalachian culture and how the region’s history and values impact service delivery and utilization for individuals with disabilities and their families allows providers to better serve these clients.

In this course, providers will receive an overview of the central Appalachian region, it’s history, culture, and values. In addition, we will examine work practices that will build rapport with clients and communities throughout the region. Examples of how service delivery can be impacted and adapted to be better received and implemented will be woven into the training. Any service provider working in rural communities can benefit from this training.

Three hours of social work and nursing CEUs are available.

The training will be conducted via Zoom and requires registration.
