In: Cultural Competence

From the Associated Press:

As the country’s ethnic profile diversifies, some states are trying to assure that health care providers are trained in “cultural competency.”

New Mexico passed a law last year requiring that higher education institutions with health education programs provide such training, though the state still is grappling with how it will be implemented. New Jersey and California are among a handful of states with similar measures already in place.

Bravo! Cultural competence is of the utmost importance!
