Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

Culturally competent healthcare systems. A systematic review

Culturally competent healthcare systems-those that offer culturally and linguistically appropriate services-have the potential to reduce racial and ethnic health differences. When clients do not understand what their healthcare providers are telling them, and providers either do not speak the client's language or are insensitive to cultural differences, the quality of health care can be compromised. We reviewed five interventions to improve cultural competence in healthcare systems-programs to recruit and retain staff members who reflect the cultural diversity of the community served, use of interpreter services or bilingual providers for clients with limited English proficiency, cultural competency training for healthcare providers, use of linguistically and culturally appropriate health education materials, and culturally specific healthcare settings.
