ICN has endorsed the Guidelines for Implementing Culturally Competent Care developed by a collaborative task force of members of the American Academy of Nursing’s (AAN) Expert Panel on Global Nursing and Health and the Transcultural Nursing Society. The guidelines are meant to serve as a resource for nurses in various roles – clinical practice, administrators, researchers and educators – by emphasising cultural competence as a priority of care for the populations they serve. They are designed to be adapted to the sociocultural context and unique health care delivery system of the user.

Journal of Transcultural Nursing 2014; Vol. 25:109-121
