Educating health care providers (HCPs) to become more culturally competent in the health care workplace is important to provide holistic care, improve quality of health outcomes, increase access to care, demonstrate respect for clients, and to respond appropriately to the needs of the ever increasingly diverse clients (Andrews & Boyle, 2001; Transcultural Nursing, 2004). It is a challenge to develop educational interventions to engender cultural competence in HCP, particularly those serving international students and their families. Online modules can be a cost-effective and efficient adjunct to traditional education methods (Phillips, 2005). The overall purpose of the grant was to develop and evaluate online modules to teach culturally competent primary health care. Campina-Bacote's (1998) Culturally Competent Model of Care serves as the conceptual framework for this study. One portion of the evaluation component of the grant, which will be reported here, consisted of a pilot test. The study assessed the effectiveness of online learning modules on the level of cultural competence of a convenience sample of 8 staff and students delivering care to international families at a small multicultural health center (MCHC) at a Midwestern university. This pre-test-posttest quasi-experimental study also focused on measuring satisfaction of convenience sample of patients (n=14) before and after the modules were completed by the staff. The student/staff sample completed the Transcultural Self-Efficacy Tool (TSET) (Jeffreys & Smodlaka, 1996) as a measure of perception of cultural competence, and independently participated a discussion group after each module. The patients completed a satisfaction survey before and after as well. Data analysis will include descriptive statistics and t-tests.
