Abstract

DIVERSITY: The changing demographics and economics of our growing multicultural world, and the long-standing disparities in the health status of people from culturally diverse backgrounds has challenged health care providers and organizations to consider cultural diversity as a priority. The purpose of this article is to present a model that will be helpful in providing culturally competent care. The concept of cultural competence is discussed, "The Process of Cultural Competence in the Delivery of Healthcare Services Model" is described, and a mnemonic to guide in providing culturally competent care is presented.
