As leaders in health care become more acutely aware of health disparities, the pressure increases to develop culturally competent organizations. 

  • The Department of Health and Human Services report Healthy People 2010, including goal number 2, "Eliminate health disparities."
  • The data provided in Figures 1-1 and 1-2, and the related discussion about disparities in health care in Chapter 1 of the Kosoko-Lasaki, Cook, and O'Brien text, pages 1–4.

In one page or less, answer the following questions:

  • If cultural competence is a national goal, what factors must health care leadership consider?
  • Discuss differences in quality of health care versus unequal treatment. Considering health disparities, what contributing factors do you think are important?

Take a position on these issues, provide specific examples and relevant experiences, and cite assigned readings or outside reading or research as appropriate to support your position.
