Cultural competency is crucial to ensuring that high quality healthcare is accessible to diverse cultural groups and is respectful of and responsive to their healthcare needs. Culture can play a large part in shaping an individual's views of illness, disease, treatments and health. Consideration of individual beliefs, language, and personal and social customs can ensure a good relationship between patients and healthcare providers.

The College recognises the need to provide resources on cultural competency for its Members and is dedicated to promoting cultural competency in all its trainees and Fellows.
