Culturally Sensitive Healthcare for Anabaptist (Amish/Mennonite) Populations

Description:  Anabaptist groups (plain people) are expanding in Kentucky with an estimated population of 10,000 individuals in 53 Anabaptist communities in the Commonwealth (Donnermeyer & Anderson, 2014). However, there are no known continuing education (CE) programs that address the skills needed to provide healthcare for these populations. This interactive module was developed to fill that void. The content was developed from research among Anabaptist populations (Garrett-Wright, Main, & Jones, 2017) and healthcare providers who have experience providing care for these populations.
