Increasing the Cultural Competence and Sensitivity of Healthcare Professionals

On episode 412 of The Nurse Keith Show nursing and healthcare career podcast, Keith interviews Dr. Raj Sundar, a full-spectrum family physician, podcaster, and community organizer. In the course of their conversation, Raj and Keith discuss the difference between cultural competence and cultural safety, where cultural competence falls short, and how healthcare professionals can increase their competence in the interest of their patients’ well-being and cultural safety.

Dr. Sundar is the host of Healthcare for Humans, a podcast dedicated to educating others on how to care for culturally diverse communities in order to become more effective healers. He works with others to create systems that treat each person with dignity while respecting their histories, celebrating their joys, and honoring their hopes.
