In partnership with the ADvancing IQ Learning Center, NAPCA developed a cultural competency course: Strengthening Cultural Competence in Information and Referral/Assistance Work with AAPI Older Adults. During this course, the National Resource Center on AAPI Aging provides a general overview of AAPI older adult populations throughout America, including demographic trends, cultural diversity and barriers to accessing services.

The course offers strategies for staff and providers to integrate cultural and linguistic competence into their work with AAPI older adults, strengthening access to the Aging Network’s long-term services and supports system for this diverse group. This hour-long course is free and provides a certificate of completion for those who successfully pass the course quiz.
