This paper provides input to the National Advisory Committee (NAC) for the design and definition of curriculum modules on culturally competent care based on the corresponding subset of National Standards for Culturally and Linguistically Appropriate Services in Health Care (CLAS). The author was commissioned to write on one of the three main areas of the CLAS Standards: culturally competent care, and asserts that to communicate with and treat patients of varying backgrounds, preferences and cultures health care providers must have a solid understanding of and respect for patients' differing health beliefs and practices.
