I have been a consultant for health systems, faith-based groups, and community organizations and conducted cultural competency assessments, needs assessments, and program evaluations. I have the skills and expertise to conduct:
- Qualitative assessments and evaluations: conducting interviews, focus groups, and systematic observations; analyzing the resulting texts using the Grounded Theory approach.
- Quantitive assessments and evaluations: designing and administering surveys tailored to the needs of clients; analyzing the numerical data using statistics.
- Mixed methods assessment and evaluations: using both qualitative and quantitive methods for data collection and analysis.
I consider Group Concept Mapping, recently renamed Group Wisdom, particularly useful for a wide range assessments. The Intercultural Development Inventory is an excellent tool to do cultural competency assessment and training.
Please contact me if you would like to develop an assessment or evaluation project.
