Cultural adaptation refers to the process and time it takes a person to assimilate to a new culture. Implementation science is a method for integrating evidence-based practices into policy and practice. Cultural Elements: Implementation Science and Cultural Adaptation: A Two-Way Street on a Bridge will use the two theories to create a connection between the National Standards for Culturally and Linguistically Appropriate Services (the CLAS Standards) and practice. 

We will look at cultural adaptation from the host country's perspective, analyze the data on how we welcome and adapt to immigrant groups using evidence-based research, and evaluate our current healthcare environments. We will likewise go through the CLAS Standards and apply Cultural Elements: Communication Principles to learn firsthand how implementation science and cultural adaptation can work together to benefit diverse populations. 

This event is part of the Masters Series: Ohio Cultural Competence in Behavioral. Health, a collaborative effort between the Great Lakes ATTC, MHTTC, and PTTC, the National Hispanic and Latino ATTC, MHTTC, and PTTC, the Prevention Action Alliance, the Ohio Latino Affairs Commission, and Ohio Mental Health and Addiction Services.
