APA Task Force on Race and Ethnicity Guidelines in Psychology: These guidelines provide aspirational guidance for the development of racial and ethnocultural responsiveness for psychological practice.  Racial and ethno-cultural responsiveness means the continual development of knowledge, awareness, reflective practice, and skills needed to promote health, well-being, and equity for racially and ethnically diverse individuals and communities.  Although the guidelines aim to be comprehensive, it is beyond the scope of any single document to provide an exhaustive review of all areas related to race and ethnicity. Instead, these guidelines are a starting point reflecting the current knowledge base and context. Citation: APA Task Force on Race and Ethnicity Guidelines in Psychology.

Standards of Practice for Culturally Competent Nursing Care Executive Summary: A task force of the Expert Panel for Global Nursing and Health of the American Academy of Nursing, along with members of the Transcultural Nursing Society, has developed a set of standards for cultural competence in nursing practice. The aim of this project was to define standards that can be universally applied by nurses around the world in the areas of clinical practice, research, education, and administration, especially by nurses involved in direct patient care. The document includes a Preface and 12 Standards:

Standard 1. Social Justice
Standard 2. Critical Reflection
Standard 3. Knowledge of Cultures
Standard 4. Culturally Competent Practice
Standard 5. Cultural Competence in HealthCare Systems and Organizations
Standard 6. Patient Advocacy and Empowerment
Standard 7. Multicultural Workforce
Standard 8. Education and Training in Culturally Competent Care
Standard 9. Cross Cultural Communication
Standard 10. Cross Cultural Leadership
Standard 11. Policy Development
Standard 12. Evidence-Based Practice and Research

For each standard, a definition, supporting rationale, and numerous suggestions for implementation are provided. A glossary of terms is appended. All standards are based on the concepts of social justice and human rights, as defined by the United Nations and the International Council of Nurses. These concepts are manifested at a systems or governmental level by political, economic, and social policies that exhibit impartiality and objectivity. All task force members have experience working with peoples from a variety of cultures throughout the world. In developing this document, the task force reviewed more than 50 documents on cultural competence published by nursing and health care organizations worldwide. In addition, an on-line survey solicited comments from nurses in many countries. Responses from nurses representing a variety of settings and educational backgrounds were incorporated into the final document. Every attempt was made to develop standards that can be used globally.

Cultural Competence Education for Students in Medicine and Public Health (2012): The Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) and ASPH sponsored a Joint Expert Panel on Cultural Competence Education to develop a set of core cultural competencies appropriate for, though not limited to, medical and public health students. These competencies aim to help ensure the development and delivery of appropriate health care and population health services and policies and for a growing diverse population that includes those currently medically underserved. The competencies are designed to enable faculty in medical schools and graduate schools/programs of public health to standardize curricula, benchmark student performance, and prepare graduates for culturally competent practice. The panel additionally provided recommendations for embedding cultural competence education within and across curricula of medicine and public health, highlights of exemplary case studies, and a road map for the future.

Eastern Virginia Medical School (EVMC)Live Humble: Practicing with Cultural Humility. The primary goal of this project is to improve students’ knowledge, skills, and values in cultural humility and structural inequity. This, in turn, will improve quality of care, particularly for those who have been stigmatized. This project's objectives are as follows: 1) Define cultural humility and structural inequity and describe the dynamics of each; 2) Describe the skills associated with cultural humility and structural inequity in interpersonal and clinical settings; 3) Choose to execute this three-part process in clinical encounters: a) self-assess their own thoughts and behavior, b) be sensitive to the other’s values, beliefs, and priorities, and c) identify and execute effective strategies to diminish potential power differentials; and 4) Value cultural humility.

Tool for Assessing Cultural Competence Training (TACCT):  The TACCT is a self-administered assessment tool that can be used by medical schools to examine all components of the entire medical school curriculum. TACCT enables schools to identify gaps and redundancies in their curricula, which will enable schools to make the best use of opportunities and resources. The TACCT can be used for both traditional and problem-based curricula. An AAMC project—called "Medical Education and Cultural Competence: A Strategy to Eliminate Racial and Ethnic Disparities in Health Care" and made possible by The Commonwealth Fund—developed TACCT to assess cultural-competence training in medical schools.

The Deadliest Disease in America: This is a documentary film produced and directed by Crystal R. Emery, traces the history of racism in American healthcare, beginning with the brutal medical experimentation that slaves were forced to undergo. As this story unfolds over our nation’s history, the very same inequalities and biases continue to plague our healthcare system, creating disparities in the quality of care that Black and Brown people are afforded. Interwoven with the testimonies of experts and medical practitioners are the personal stories of patients who have been victimized by healthcare inequities, including the filmmaker’s own experiences as a quadriplegic African American woman. The COVID-19 pandemic is an exclamation point calling attention to these existing disparities, as we have witnessed communities of color experience disproportionately high rates of infection, staggering losses of life, and increased economic hardship.
