Cultural competency has never been more relevant to healthcare practitioners than it is today. Considering the cultural beliefs, habits, customs, and practices of people from different ethnic backgrounds is vital to not only effective communication, but also effective healthcare. The delivery of culturally competent care is essential to ensure positive healthcare outcomes and reduce health disparities. This course will focus on cultural competency at the practitioner level and will increase awareness and knowledge of cultural health beliefs, traditions, foods, and food habits of various cultures. Each chapter of this course will discuss the health needs of people from different cultures supported by research. Practical information is provided for the application of the principles covered in the course including suggested communication strategies for each cultural group.
