Cultural Competency Assessment

Select a person from a cultural group different from your own and perform a cultural assessment by interviewing that person. Do not use a patient from your practice. Instead use a friend or colleague.

Here are some additional details that should help you complete this assignment.
Once you select a person from another cultural group, complete the cultural assessment using questions 1 through 12 provided in the section Overview, Inhabited Localities, and Topography from the chapter “The Purnell Model for Cultural Competence” of your textbook Guide to Culturally Competent Health Care.

This assessment is based on Purnell’s twelve domains of culture. Your assessment should cover all twelve boxes for the assignment to be complete. Use the grading criteria in the table below as a guide for what questions should be asked. For the sake of confidentiality, please do not reveal the name of the person you interview. Only use initials.

Submit the assessment in a Microsoft Word document.
