Increasingly, patients and communities are seeking and expecting provision of health services that are mindful and respectful of their cultural beliefs and practices.This may reflect the health experiences of minority populations but also the expectations of healthcare professionals from minority backgrounds. Therefore healthcare practitioners, healthcare organizations and providers of healthcare professional education benefit from developing an understanding of culture and the effect of their own culture and that of their coworkers and of their patients. In the literature and in professional competency standards, there are many expectations for today's healthcare providers, including cultural sensitivity, cultural awareness, and several seeking cultural competency.
