Cultural Competence in Nursing: Foundation or Fallacy?
Dreher, Melanie; MacNaughton, Neil
Nursing Outlook, v50 n5 p181-86 Sep-Oct 2002
The recommendations for nurses to become culturally competent fall into two categories. The first focuses on the content and structure of the encounter between provider and patient; the second charges providers with becoming knowledge about the culture of their patients. Cultural competence is really nursing competence--the capacity to be equally therapeutic for all patients. (Contains 45 references.) (JOW)
