Culturally and Linguistically Appropriate Standards (CLAS) Resources

Resource Location:

These resources supplement the National CLAS Standards education series and can help organizations assess and implement practices that align with the HHS National Standards for Culturally and Linguistically Appropriate Services (CLAS) in Health and Health Care to promote health equity and patient-centered care.

Culturally and linguistically appropriate services (CLAS) ensure that the services your organization provides are respectful and responsive to each patient’s culture and communication needs. The Case for CLAS Flyer outlines why this makes good business sense.

The CLAS Engagement Flyer provides explains CLAS, why it is important, and the impact on patient care.
