Cultural Competency Training - Delegated Entities
Because health care is a cultural construct based on beliefs about the nature of disease and the human body, cultural issues are central to the delivery of health services.
Culture effects patient care by informing:
- Concepts of health and healing
- How illness, disease, and their causes are perceived
- The behaviors of patients who are seeking health care
- Attitudes toward health care providers
Learn how culture defines health care expectations for different communities — as well as how to manage those expectations to benefit physicians and patients.
