The
process of Cultural Competence in the delivery of Healthcare Services by
Campinha-Bacote will be used as the conceptual framework for the DNP
project.  According to Campinha-Bacote
(2011), cultural competence (CC) is a process in which nurses constantly tries
to attain the skill and the readiness to successfully work within the cultural
context of their clients. According to Leininger and McFarland (2002), a culturally
competent nurse acknowledges the fact that cultures affect the nurse-client
relations and incorporates the client’s personal, social, and cultural needs
and beliefs into the treatment plan. Campinha-Bacote described CC as a
“process of becoming culturally competent” utilizing these concepts rather than
“being culturally competent”.  According
to Campinha-Bacote (2011), the process
of Cultural Competence in the delivery of Healthcare Services Model can be used
as a framework for developing and implementing culturally competent training
for staff.   The
five concepts identified by Campinha-Bacote in this conceptual model are
cultural awareness, cultural knowledge, cultural skill, cultural encounters,
and cultural desire.
