By Between November 2004 and January 2005, the Institute for Culturally Competent Care (ICCC) conducted a needs assessment survey to identify perceived needs for education and training in the area of culturally competent care, as well as preferred methods to receive that education and training. Among targeted recipients were physicians, physician assistants, osteopaths, nurse practitioners, nurses, pharmacists, and dieticians. The Colorado Region opted out of the assessment survey because it was preparing to conduct its own survey in the near future. The Southern California and Northwest Regions participated through representatives because each Region had recently conducted similar surveys.
