It offers seven recommendations for improving cultural competency in health care organizations: Collect race, ethnicity and language preference (REAL) data; Identify and report disparities; Provide culturally and linguistically competent care; Develop culturally competent disease management programs; Increase diversity and minority workforce pipelines; Involve the community; and make cultural competency an institutional priority.
