Culturally Competent Nursing Care Cultural competence in health care is broadly defined as the ability of providers and organizations to understand and integrate these factors into the delivery and structure of the health care system. The goal of culturally competent health care services is to provide the highest quality of care to every patient, regardless of race, ethnicity, cultural background, English proficiency or literacy https://hpi.georgetown.edu/agingsociety/pubhtml/cultural/cultural.html. Mainstream (i.e. dominant) Culture Defined The majority population of a culture generally sets the dominant culture (i.e. mainstream culture). Historically, the dominant culture has often exercised control over law, communication (designated language), political processes, educational institutions, business practices and creative expression. A culture is dominant within society when that culture establishes specific behaviors or a set of rituals, values and social norms. Characteristics of a Minority, Ethnic culture An ethnic minority is a group of people who differ in race or color or in national, religious, or cultural origin from the dominant group — often the majority population — of the country in which they live. The different identity of an ethnic minority may be displayed in any number of ways, ranging from distinctive customs, lifestyles, language or accent, dress, and food preferences to attitudes, moral values, health beliefs, and economic or political beliefs espoused by members of the group.
