This is a friendly reminder that the North Dakota Health Equity Training Initiative is still available for FREE. There are nine modules on health equity-related subject matter. Each training is available for continuing education contact hours (CEU) approved by the North Dakota Board of Nursing and Continuing Medical Education (CME).

If you haven’t completed the training yet, we encourage you to take advantage of this valuable resource. It is an excellent way to enhance your knowledge of health equity and gain valuable insight into working with underserved populations.

These trainings are available on ND Train. You will need to create an account if you do not already have one. The course ID is 6690.

The North Dakota Department of Health and Human Services has developed a training series to introduce health equity; giving participants the information and insights they need to identify inequities in the workplace. In the long term, the trainings will provide the knowledge and skills required to develop new structures, practices and approaches to improve outcomes and the quality of life for individuals.

In this 9-module series, health equity concepts are covered and applied in progressively more in-depth contexts, ending with a final module on directly applying the content to the workplace. Some of the topics covered are health equity concepts, implicit bias, and equitable communication strategies. The trainings will provide foundational knowledge of factors driving health disparities, including social determinants of health (i.e., economic stability, education access and quality, healthcare quality and access, neighborhoods and built environments and those that impact social factors and community development) that can negatively affect health outcomes.

This training is appropriate for individuals working in a wide range of occupations, including but not limited to healthcare, allied health professionals and others who have an impact on people’s health (e.g., those in fields related to economic stability, education access and quality, neighborhoods and built environments and those that impact social factors and community development).

While this training is based on North Dakota needs, it is appropriate for all individuals. Learn more
