Resourse Cultural Competency in Nursing Presentation

To ensure both equal access to quality health care by diverse populations, as well as a secure environment, all health care providers must “promote and support the attitudes, behaviors, knowledge, and skills necessary for staff to work respectfully and effectively with patients and each other in a culturally diverse work environment” (Office of Minority Health, 2001, p. 7). Cultural competency infers that professionals providing nursing care must be cultivated to be culturally “sensitive, culturally appropriate, and culturally competent” (Spector, 2013, p. 11).
