Today's evidence in healthcare research clearly supports the significant role that culture plays in the interaction between healthcare professionals and clients. The Healthcare Professional's Guide to Clinical Cultural Competence serves as an introduction to developing cultural competence, an important aspect of providing client-centred care. Cultural competency emphasizes the idea of operating effectively in different cultural contexts. Using a unique framework that moves beyond cultural sensitivity, cultural knowledge, and cultural awareness, this book focuses on learning and acquiring the necessary skills to identify with, and care for, the diversity of cultures encountered in a variety of healthcare settings.
