Cultural Competency in Healthcare: Translating Differences Into Improved Quality and Access


A provider-patient language barrier can undermine the quality and accessibility of healthcare for that patient. But cultural misunderstandings can have more subtle consequences.

This special report, "Cultural Competency in Healthcare: Translating Differences Into Improved Quality and Access," details educational and communication strategies for leveraging cultural differences to improve the quality and accessibility of healthcare. Representatives from two healthcare organizations detail how their diversity programs are addressing the needs of culturally diverse populations. Also included are first-hand experiences from some of the respondents to HINís recent online survey of cultural diversity efforts in the healthcare industry.
