Description:

The term cultural competence is best defined as a set of behaviours, attitudes and policies that allow professionals to work effectively in cross-cultural situations. Within a health care setting, cultural competence is the integration and utilization of knowledge about individuals and groups of people used in appropriate cultural settings to increase the quality of care and produce improved health outcomes. It is crucial that a health care provider always bears in mind the relevance of individual and cultural bias, and provider and institutional values as they influence health care utilization as they practice. These biases, on the part of the practitioner and the client, must be considered in providing health care. Developing Clinical Cultural Competence: A Handbook for Health Professions covers an important topic that everyone in health care should be required to master. Popular terminology in this field includes cultural awareness, cultural knowledge, and cultural sensitivity, however, the move towards cultural competence is quickly becoming recognized as the best approach. This is due to the fact that cultural competency emphasizes the idea of effectively operating in different cultural contexts, moving beyond sensitivity, knowledge or awareness which do not include this concept. This first edition will introduce the topic of cultural competence. It is primarily intended for nursing students, but this does not preclude students studying in any of the health sciences. Principles are explained through the use of practical examples and case studies.
