Multicultural Health Series: Case Studies on Cultural Competence in Health Care

Various cultures view critical healthcare issues such as disease prevention, patient/provider communication, and death and dying differently. The Multicultural Health Series (141 pages, PDF) contains ten case studies and training materials, on video and DVD, designed to educate providers about cultural sensitivity in health care. Funded by the California Endowment and Kaiser Permanente, the curriculum emphasizes the diversity of beliefs and behaviors within age, ethnic, racial, religious, and professional groups.
