What is Cultural Competence?

Cultural Competence is a more comprehensive, effective, and sophisticated approach to remedying cross-cultural differences. It goes beyond simple demographic differences (such as race or gender) and takes into account cultural norms and traditions, communication styles, belief and value systems, and much more.
