Joining us today is Raj Sundar, a family physician with expertise in cultural humility and safety.
Raj explains that the traditional approach to such situations tends to ignore the patient's cultural values and beliefs, with the health care team often focused on achieving their goals. However, cultural humility and safety offer an alternative paradigm. Cultural humility involves self-reflection of one's own values and beliefs, while cultural safety aims to create an environment free from harm for the patient when receiving care.
By applying these principles, we can gain a better understanding of the patient's cultural background and how it influences their decision-making. Through cultural humility and safety, we can create a shared world of care that respects and values diverse communities, providing the best care possible.

He shares his story and discusses his KevinMD article, "It’s time to ditch cultural competence."
