Cultural Awareness

Oneida Comprehensive Health Division implemented a Cultural Awareness policy on November 20, 2015 to:

    1. Ensure Comprehensive Health Division employees are culturally sensitive and competent in working with individuals from the Oneida Nation and surrounding Tribes.
    2. Establish procedures to enhance the value of services being provided and improve patient satisfaction through meeting the needs of individuals from the Oneida Nation and surrounding Tribes.
    3. Ensure the Health education and disease prevention programs are comprehensive and will consider the medical, psychological, social, and cultural needs of the population to be in compliance with accreditation standards of the organization.
