Cultural Congruent Care: A Reflection on Patient Outcome

The growing diverse multicultural population in the United States requires that healthcare workers develop cultural knowledge, awareness, and sensitivity to help diverse patient population receive quality health care. Personal belief has been identified as a significant contributor to professional care delivery and may influence the provision of culturally competent care. However, the relationship between cultural competence and the individual cognitive perception has been an uneasy one. This article explores the moral foundations of cultural competence and ultimately its impact on patient care outcome.
