Cultural competence.jpg

Much has been written on cultural competence as a way of improving the care received by patients from diverse and different cultural backgrounds.

There are certain implicit assumptions surrounding the clinician’s knowledge base and attitudes and towards the notion of cultural competence, which this module attempts to challenge.

This module is intended as a guide for those desiring to improve their practice and the outcomes for patients from diverse cultural groups, and for those willing to look at their own cultural biography as a significant factor affecting the therapeutic relationship.

The module also encourages reflection and challenge to familiar methods of practice, whilst undertaking safe practice and innovation where appropriate.
