Cultural Competence in Health: A Review of the Evidence

Cultural Competence in Health Care: A Review of the Evidence is an exciting and ground-breaking account of the complexities and disparities of knowledge, praxis and process within the quagmire of this slippery beast Cultural Competence. I say slippery beast in that it is a notion that has been very difficult to define and/or collapse into an equitable semantic space. The authors however do just that; they delve into the murky waters of literature and explore the many dimensions of this convoluted term that has remained unattainable to many of us, delivering an inspiring and particularly informing explanation of the many facets of this philosophy of practice. This book examines and brings together what has not been fully known about cultural competence in practice before: the numerous perspectives are synthesised and developed from a far-reaching realm across the broad spectrum of health delivery. The many other “ways of knowing”, like cultural competence but known as different for their own special nuances, are also surveyed, bringing a greater clarity of why the difference matters.
