A Physician’s Practical Guide to Culturally Competent Care

Description:

Culturally and linguistically appropriate services help advance health equity, improve quality and eliminate health and health care disparities.

Persistent disparities, an increasingly diverse society, and an evolving health and health care system all underscore the necessity for providing services and care in a culturally and linguistically appropriate manner.

A Physician’s Practical Guide to Culturally Competent Care equips physicians with awareness, knowledge, and skills in culturally and linguistically appropriate services to improve the quality of services and care provided in our nation’s health and health care organizations.
