PBHL2950: Disparities in Health: Cultural Competence

Cultural Competence

Cultural competence is important in understanding the needs and challenges of different populations.  It can help you to empathize with people who are different from you, and to approach their health-related concerns with respect.  

These resources have been selected as a starting point for finding information about different populations, and includes books, ebooks and websites that you can explore.  

If you don't see your population listed here, look for additional resources under the Books & Media or Find Articles tabs on the Library homepage.
