Scenario: Cross, Bazron, Dennis and Isaacs (1989) defined cultural competence as “a set of congruent behaviors, attitudes and policies that come together as a system, that system, agency or those professionals to work effectively in cross-cultural situations”. Cultural Competency is vital to sustainability of a health care organization and the ability to provide high quality health care to the community in which serves. Cultural competency consists of a blend of ethics, values, morals, a health care organizations mission statement and the recognition of all employees, patients and visitors are and shall be treated equally.
