Cultural competence in healthcare

Culturally sensitive health care has been described as care that reflects “the ability to be appropriately responsive to the attitudes, feelings, or circumstances of groups of people that share a common and distinctive racial, national, religious, linguistic, or cultural heritage”.

The North Carolina Medical Board is committed to providing resources to help you better understand cultural humility and explore the social and cultural realities of the individuals you serve.
