Presentation Type: topical discussion

Synopsis: Cultural competence remains a key value in a system of care, dependent upon culturally competent mainstream providers and specialty providers. Much effort and resources have been devoted to addressing the capacity of systems of care to develop policies and infrastructure to enhance cultural competence. Yet limited efforts have focused on the development of specialty providers and networks. This discussion presents an approach to developing and sustaining specialty provider networks within systems of care. Presenters provide an assessment of the Multicultural Specialty Provider Network’s (MSPN) role in Minnesota, and how it addresses disparities within child and family serving systems. MSPN’s evolution will be explored within the context of capacity to impact change: as a state-funded program and as a multicultural 501c3 organization. Participants will engage in an interactive dialogue on the lessons learned from MSPN’s history.
