This is a list of resources that provide more information about cultural competence. Included are organizations, general information, training workshops and conferences, policy resources, and implementation resources.


Rationale for Cultural Competence in Primary Health Care


The mission of the National Center for Cultural Competence (NCCC) is to increase the capacity of health care and mental health programs to design, implement and evaluate culturally and linguistically competent service delivery systems. The NCCC is a collaborative project between the Georgetown University Child Development Center and Federal government agencies. NCCC home page: http://gucdc.georgetown.edu/nccc/cultural.html

This report describes best practices in three areas: (a) culturally competent health services, (b) policy development and research in multicultural health and (c) community capacity building. It comments on factors that facilitate or hinder the implementation and replication of best practices.

Cross Cultural Health Care Program "Voices of the Communities"


In 1995 the Cross Cultural Health Care Program sponsored the "Voices of the Communities" survey in which members of under-served populations spoke out about their health care experiences. In the process, many important lessons were learned about working with communities in a culturally competent manner.
