CULTURAL AWARENESS IN HEALTH CARE: ENHANCING EQUITY AND HUMAN RIGHTS
H. E. KELLY*, L. KOSKINEN and COHERE culture curriculum development group
Abstract Content: Globalization has resulted in increased migration from one region to another. Health care professionals are increasingly caring for the needs of refugees, asylum seekers, and other potentially vulnerable groups
that can have physical, psychological, and socio-cultural problems as a result of their experiences. A project supported by the Consortium of Institutes in Higher Education in Health and Rehabilitation (COHEHRE) developed a curriculum
framework for the enhancement of cultural competence in European healthcare educations. The framework recognizes the need for an increased educational emphasis upon macro-level organizational and structural factors hereunder social, economic, political and environmental variables which affect patient care. The framework thus acknowledges professional awareness concerning the need to reduce health disparities and discrimination as being an integral part of the
development of cultural competence.
