Cultural Competencies

Cross Cultural Competence is a personal journey.  It is the process of developing and becoming aware, seeking knowledge, gaining understanding and appreciation of differences in order to:

  1. Demonstrate sensitivity and respect
  2. Communicate effectively
  3. Advocate for equality in healthcare


"To be culturally competent doesn’t mean you are an authority in the values and beliefs of every culture. What it means is that you hold a deep respect for cultural differences and are eager to learn, and willing to accept, that there are many ways of viewing the world." ~ Okokon O. Udo ~
